Kalu said, “You have done well. Ukwa is collapsing. The testimony is clear. Continue the good work. I met with the Governor the other day and I urged him to return to APC. We need to deliver here for Mr. President, we have to keep mobilizing until the sitting Governor will see that it’s APC everywhere you go.

“Keep up the good work, bring more people, let’s expand the party. We will hold an event where all the big people that have a structure in the party will receive you, from Bende, Ohafia, Item, Umuahia, Ukwa and so on.

“I will bring the national chairman of the party to receive you. We will make sure that as you’re coming in, you will be stakeholders. You will have a stake and you’re accountable. We will try our best to support Mr President as he supports you, by building the party. Thank you all.”

Also, speaking during the visit, leader of the group and the representative of Abia state in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Chief Dimgba Eruba commended the President for choosing one of their own to represent Abia at the NDDC, and as well hailed the Deputy Speaker for the good works he has been doing since assuming of office.

They assured the Deputy Speaker that the Ukwa people are fully behind him, adding that they will mobilise more people to join APC.

“More are still willing to come. They have seen the good work that you’ve started, they now say that wherever you’re, that’s where they will be. I wish to implore Your Excellency to continue to do that which you’ve started. Ukwa people are solidly behind you. We are waiting for further directives on what next should we do. We’ll deliver APC 100%. Ukwa belongs to APC”, he said.
