Anambra guber: Kalu tasks voters to key state into ruling party



Former governor of Abia State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Orji Kalu has reaffirmed its party’s determination to unseat the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) state government in the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.

According to him, the APC will do all it can to convince Anambra voters to reconnect the state with the centre.

Kalu made the call in Abuja on Sunday after hosting a group of businessmen from Nnewi, Anambra State.

He acknowledged efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari administration in building a prosperous nation, and that Nigeria is gradually taking its rightful position among the nations.

The former governor used the opportunity to applaud Ebonyi State governor, Chief David Umahi for encouraging President Muhammadu Buhari to seek re-election in 2019, stressing that regardless of party differences, politicians should be united for the common good of the people.

“The forthcoming election in Anambra State will be a good opportunity for Ndi Anambra to join mainstream politics.

“If Anambra State is governed by the APC, more federal projects will be attracted to the state.

“The South East had been marginalized by previous governments and the time is now to support President Buhari’s determination to uplift Ndigbo.

“It is glaring from the 2018 budget presented by the president to the National Assembly a few days ago that the 2nd Niger Bridge among other federal projects will be duly executed.

“The people of the South East have a lot to gain from joining the ruling party at the centre.

“Ndigbo are well known for their business acumen and as such if Anambra State is governed by the APC, it will be easier to use the federal might to develop commercial hubs across the South East.

“Gone are the days Ndigbo didn’t participate in national politics. We are glad that our people are now appreciating the essence of getting involved in Nigeria’s democracy.

“Our businesses cannot grow if we don’t elect credible people who can provide the basic necessities of life such as good roads, uninterrupted power supply, soft loans, free education and quality health facilities.

“Going forward, Ndigbo will not play politics of exclusion.

“We will work closely with the ruling party at the federal level in order to attract development to the South East.

‎”I am impressed with the scheduled two-day working visit of the President to Ebonyi State.

“I equally believe that the President will join us for the grand finale of the APC governorship campaign in Anambra State next week.

” These visits show that the collective interest of Nigerians regardless of party affiliation is paramount to the President”

The businessman-cum politician, who used the occasion to extol the virtues of the newly appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, added that the President made the right choice at the right time.

He said, “the new SGF has verifiable track record in the private and public spheres of life. He is diligent, humble, hard working, bold and above all, he is a seasoned politician with a good understanding of the political dynamics of Nigeria”.

Kalu while throwing his weight behind the candidature of President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term in office, emphasised that it is imperative for the North to complete their eight years in order to pave way for a Nigeria President of Igbo extraction in 2023.

The APC chieftain declared that “judging from the robust accomplishments of the federal government, it is only logical for President Buhari to seek re-election in 2019.

“We want the president to sustain his good work till 2023.

“He is leading the country well and as such there is no need to change a winning team.

” I urge Nigerians at home and abroad to sustain their support for the President in its determination to make life meaningful for the citizenry”.

The former governor called on the APC family in Anambra State to close ranks and work for the success of the party in the forthcoming election.

He said, ” Dr. Tony Nwoye having emerged through a credible primary, deserves the support of Ndi Anambra in his mission to put the state on the right path to prosperity.

“He has the capacity to drive the desired development in Anambra State owing to his understanding of the challenges facing the people at the grassroots.

“No doubt, from his antecedents, Nwoye will perform well, if elected governor.

Kalu while admonishing political parties to caution their standard bearers against rigging, violence and other election malpractices, urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), security agencies and other stakeholders to ensure a hitch-free election in Anambra State.

The former governor equally used the occasion to distance himself from posters in major cities including Lagos and Abuja urging people to ‘Vote Orji Kalu for President under the platform of the APC.’

He added, “the fake posters are the handiwork of political jobbers, who are afraid of the robust support we are galvanizing for the APC in the South East.

“It is a ploy by enemies of progress to cause disaffection among party members.

“I will not lose sleep over the antics of the perpetrators of such uncivilised act.

“At the right time, I will declare my political ambition but certainly not for President.

“I stand with President Buhari.”

    let me make it clear now,
    1. if you people has killed NAMDI KANU hoping that the issue will end like that, it is total lie, it can not end, not only getting Biafra, we must fight you Eastern Cowards that has hand on that and we must get Biafra whether Good OR Bad.

    2. If you have collaborate to killed him now went to collect #88bn Naira from Nigerian Government to close the issue, now which issue are you people try to close?

    Are you people trying to close the issue in the sense that you are the one that started it.

    Do not forget these because of money, Ohaneze and Eastern Governors, you can not stop what you do not know how it started! !

    Collecting money to stop Biafra restoration is like creating a deadly battle with Igbo elders and the masses, Though we know they will come with military.

    As long as we the Biafrans has know the truth these day and to confirm that all those of you claiming Igbo Elders, politicians and looters not leaders are nonentity and Mental slaves, Hypocrisy, we can not sit down and watch you people to Islamize us with the Hausa Fulani.

    Yes we know you people do not have future, your future is that money. You do not have in sight to see the hand written on the wall.

    All you are interested is that #88bn Naira then if all Igbos die or used us to practice sharia by Islamizing us, it is not your business.

    You take the money, share it with your fellow BABOO then travel out with your children, leaving us in chain with Hausa Fulani for them to take our land to build mosque all over Biafran land, tomorrow the will force us to become Muslim, if we say no, then our children will be cutting into pieces just because of you good for nothing people, taken our land where our future children will capitalise for Cow Grazing.

    In fact, i do not see any way any reasonable Biafran will have a place to forgive you people for your cowardness.

    This is the same thing they did to M.K.O Abiola by given the Yoruba foolish elders Affenifere money worth up million Dollars to close the issue.

    Our issue can not happened like that and those that are calling for the continuation of Nigeria are the one to curse another Civil War because we are not interested again. For sure we rather go for that War again that to allowed you people to Islamize is.

    All Biafran Youths world wide will here this information now.

    All the peace you people are claiming that is coming back is only coming back right here in front of news paper because this is when the War drum is about to start and you people must provide Namdi Kanu now.

    All Hail Biafra! ! !
