Politics is more than the occupation of political offices; it involves representing the people and their needs which is achieved through building relevant synergies with resourceful persons. To realise this is to understand what politics truly entails.

Bola Ahmed Tinubu (the Jagaban), national leader of the All People’s Congress (APC), a man who admired the work Hon. Kalu has been doing as the spokesman of the House of Representatives and his bond with the Speaker Rt. Hon Femi Gbajabiamila.

Kalu equally thanked the Jagaban for supporting his nomination as the member representing the South East House of Representative members in the National Executive Council (NEC), the top decision-making body of the APC.

It shows one thing; the people are with you and you are with the people.

We will always be around to support good young leaders like you.“
