Popular APC candidate for House of Reps., Bende Federal Constituency, Chief Benjamin Kalu esq. was yesterday, besieged by the people of Mbukwa Okopedi, Itumbauzo when he visited to attend the funeral service of the late mother of Mr. Samuel Udo.
During the visit Barr. Benjamin Kalu met with the Mbukwa Okopedi chiefs who he condoled and mourn with for the loss of their loved one.
The chiefs thanked him for coming, commending him for always supporting and identifying with them. They expressed their appreciation for the fact that he visited on such an occasion as a kin and son of the soil rather than as a campaigning politician.
They assured him of their unwavering support and promised to massively vote for him in the coming elections.
In a moment of celebration of the life of Late Mrs. Udo, Barr. Kalu led the villagers in a celebratory dance and was quickly overwhelmed by an outpouring of villagers who were happy to dance with him.
A man of liberal heart, Barr. Kalu did not leave the event until he had distributed exercise books, almanacs, handwash soaps and other products to the cheering people of Itumbauzo.
