A group known as Abia Rescue Movement has accused the Chief Whip of the Senate, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, of involvement in anti-party activities and fueling disunity in the Abia State chapter of the All Progressives Congress.
The group in a statement on Friday by its Coordinator, Dr Onuoha Emezie, also alleged that Kalu, was behind several media attacks against the APC governorship candidate in the state, Chief Ikechi Emenike, through proxies.
Emezie, was reacting to a statement credited to one Pastor Okey Umesie, who said that Emenike was under fire for “saying Orji Kalu created Action Peoples Party to sponsor his brother’s governorship ambition”.
Recall that Kalu had openly denied his involvement in the formation of the APP and his younger brother’s (Mascot) governorship ambition few months ago.
Emezie, however asked Kalu to choose between the APC and the APP which party he owed his loyalty.
The statement partly read, “We must emphasise that there is no grain of smartness for anyone to stand on the platform of APC and be sponsoring APP. This is anti-party activity of the highest order. And Kalu knows it very well but prefers to play the ostrich.”
