Kalu resigns from PPA

Eminent  businessman and former governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Kalu has resigned his membership of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA).  The former governor said he took the decision after wide consultations with political associates, followers, loyalists and well-wishers.
This was contained in a November 14, 2016 letter he personally signed and addressed to the national chairman of the party.
The letter was made available to the media yesterday: “It is with a heavy heart, full of precious memories, profound appreciation and goodwill that I write to inform you of my decision to quit my membership of the PPA.
“As a founding member of the PPA, in 2006 and a former chairman of the BoT, I have been fortunate to have witnessed first hand, the growth of a party that grew out of the yearning of a people to challenge their intuition and their struggle to determine who governs them and how they should be governed.
“I gave to the PPA and that struggle the better part of my political life and the time has come for me to say thank you for the opportunity to have served a worthy cause, and to have been your flag bearer as candidate for the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“I must move on now and as Tennyson reminds us, “Though much has been taken, much still abides and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.
“And so, today, I officially resign my membership.
Thank you and may God continue to guide the affairs of the PPA under your reign as national chairman.’’
PPA which was founded by Kalu in 2006, produced Chief T. A Orji and Chief Ikedi Ohakim as governors of Abia and Imo states respectively in the 2007 polls.

    From PDP to PPA, now that you have dumped the very party that you were at the centre of its formation shows that you have made yourself available in the political transfer market,it is up to the bidders.If you finally joins the APC it means you have avoided a possible probe from the present administration,since those under the umbrella of the ruling party are enjoying immunity as members of the family. I hope you cross part with positive minded politicians as you seek to ascend in you political career.We would understand better your reason for dumping PPA,come 2019.

    KALU, IT IS OF NO DOUBT THAT YOUR SAGACITY AS A STOIC POLITICIAN WITH A CLOUT AND FIRMAMENT IN THE NIGERIAN POLITICAL HORIZON IS UNQUESTIONABLE, BUT, YOUR PENCHANT FOR MOVING FROM ONE PARTY TODAY AND ANOTHER TOMORROW AND BACK TO TO THE REGURGITATED PARTY IS MAKING A GREAT MANY OF YOUR SUPPORTERS UNCOMFORTABLE, DISENCHANTED, DISILLUSIONED AND RUDDERLESS.. BESIDES, YOUR FAILURES AT THE POLLS WHICH IS BECOMING A TRADE MARK, IT IS ADVISABLE YOU PULL OUT OF POLITICS FOR THE MEAN TIME AND BECOME AN ELDERSTATESMAN, ADVICER/ ADVISOR TO THE YOUNGER ONES . THE MISTAKE YOU MADE WHICH IS STILL PURSUING YOUR POLITICAL CAREER WAS THAT YOU LEFT YOUR INCUMBENCY WHICH WOULD HAVE GOTTEN YOU INTO THE SENATE WHEN YOU LEFT OFFICE AS GOVERNOR OF ABIA STATE TO VIE FOR PRESIDENCY WHICH YOU KNEW YOU NEVER WON. SMART POLITICIANS LIKE T A ORJI YOUR POLITICAL SON AND OTHER EX-GOVERNORS DID IT AND SEE WHERE THEY ARE TODAY. BUT YOU THREW AWAY THAT CHANCE ONLY TO LOOK FOR IT NOW THAT THE POLITICAL CLIMATE IS NO LONGER IN YOUR FAVOUR. PLEASE, RETIRE NOW THAT THE OVATION IS STILL HIGH.
