Constituents of Aro, Isu and Ututu wards of Arochukwu Local Government Area of Abia-North have unanimously adopted Orji Uzor Kalu and supported his quest to run for another term at the Senate.

Kalu, candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) had just concluded touring the 21 wards in Isuikwuato council where he received the unanimous endorsement.

On Sunday, Kalu also visited the following wards – Aro Ward 3, 2, 1 and 4; Ututu Ward A, B, C and Isu. 

He inspected projects facilitated at Aro Ward 3 and other wards, and was received by the constituents, led by APC Arochukwu council Chairman, John Million.

At Arochukwu, Isu and Ezeakuma, the APC chairman hailed Kalu’s achievements, lauded the Senate Chief Whip and urged the people to back his re-election bid in order to consolidate on his good works. 

In the area of education, Million highlighted the construction of Eze Akuma and Agbaagwu primary schools as Kalu’s gains in the community, including the reconstruction of a three block of classrooms at Ututu.

APC candidate for Arochukwu/Ohafia federal constituency, Dan Okeke, gave more reasons the electorate should vote for Kalu and himself, saying with both of them at the National Assembly, he (Okeke) would tap from Kalu’s influence and legislative experiences to bring dividends of democracy to the people.

Okeke outlined an array of projects which he facilitated for the community in his private capacity, assuring he’ll do more when elected.

“Kalu has constructed roads at Isu, Isuochi, Abam and Ihechiowa. In my private capacity, I have built a Customary Court,  ICT centres and  gave out cash to entrepreneurs…

“ It’s important that you vote for our senator so that he’ll put me through on how to attract more development, being a two time former governor,  member of House of Representatives and now senator, he has all the connections in government to bring good tidings to you all,” he said.

While acknowledging their votes of confidence and appreciation, Kalu said now that he had fully understood the workings of the Senate, the people could imagine the avalanche of projects that would come their way when he gets re-elected. 

He said: “Some have been there for 12 years and did nothing. I’ve just done a little over three years and I have been able to construct over 61 roads. In addition to schools, streetlights, boreholes and the rest of them.

“This is just the beginning because I achieved all these under tutelage being my first time at the Senate, you can only imagine what I’ll do for your communities when I return because I have fully learnt the job. 

“I have put in action by giving you what I promised in 2019, vote wisely for the APC and ensure you look out for the broom logo, though I am not happy with the state of Aro Ward 1 Road and some others, it will be my priority once I return.”

Kalu was accompanied to the community by Okeke; member representing Arochukwu state constituency, Mike Ukoha; Maduka Ukaegbu, federal commissioner, public complaints commission and other party chieftains.
