Ogbonnaya Ikokwu, Umuahia

The chief whip of the Senate, chief Orji Uzor-Kalu will emerge as the senatorial candidates of the All Progressives Congress for Abia North Senatorial district on Friday’s primary election unopposed.

Senator Kalu, has been cleared to contest the party primary election in the districts, while his single opponent Mr Fabian Okonkwo, has withdrawn from the race.

Kalu has received overwhelming applause and commendation for projects he attracted to Abia North district in the three years he represented the zone. 

The former Governor who dropped his presidential ambition for the Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan, will now contest the primaries unopposed and his candidature would only be affirmed at the end of voting on Friday. 

His earlier withdrawal from presidential race and support to Lawan has changed the dynamics of the nation’s politics as it became the major political discussion in the country. 

Kalu's support to his former roommate transcends oral declaration as he has been in the frontline of the consultation and appeal to delegates to vote Lawan for fairness , equity and justice in the country. 

Kalu has also extended all his political machineries to Lawan, with an uncommon hope and confidence that the Senate President will emerge winner at the presidential convention slated for Sunday.
