The forum of party secretaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia State arrived Abuja yesterday evening to visit Senator Orji Uzor Kalu. Immediately following their visit to Senator Kalu, the forum paid a courtesy call to Hon. Benjamin Kalu at his office in the National Assembly to thank him for sponsoring their visit to see the Senate Chief Whip.
The state secretaries were received by Hon. Benjamin Kalu and his colleagues, Hon. Ali Shettima and Hon. Chinyere Igwe (PhD). Exhorting them, Hon. Kalu urged them to remain steadfast in their support and prayers for Senator Kalu, advising them to be confident that Senator Kalu would be vindicated at the appeal.
Speaking to a Drum Africa News Correspondent, the Chairman of the body of secretaries, Mr. Emenike Uluocha, of Umuahia South LGA expressed his profound gratitude to Hon. Kalu for solely sponsoring their visit to Abuja.
“We came to see our leader and our mentor who is currently incarcerated. We are not the court to judge but we are confident that God will vindicate him as we appeal the decision of the lower court.
“We also came to say thank you to our brother and leader, Hon. Benjamin Kalu for solely sponsoring this trip. Hon. Kalu is a high flyer who is consistently representing the party and his constituents well at the local, national and international levels. We are very proud of him and came to express our gratitude.”
At the end of the visit, prayers were made for Senator Kalu and Abia State.
