Reports from Abia state said youths this afternoon embarked on a solidarity rally in Igbere to demonstrate support for Orji Uzor Kalu. A correspondents in Igbere say this was a spontaneous reaction following the news yesterday by the PDP national publicity secretary Metu confirming Kalu’s membership of the party. It could be recalled l that the Governor of Abia state T. A. Orji with some PDP stalwarts in the state have been in tremendous trepidation following their suspicion late 2012 that Kalu was scheming to rejoin the party which led to various illegal attempts by them to block his re-admission.
The youths numbering over 10, 000 according to a report were received in Kalu’s country home CAMP NEYA Igbere by his Special Assistant Chukwudi Okoroafor (Pastor) as they sang and chanted war songs marching round the compound.
In a letter presented by their leader Com. Ibe Onyebuchi (Former councilor ASA ward 2) Aba, they congratulated Kalu on his re-admission into PDP and called on him to join the race for Aso Rock 2015. This according to them is based on the fact that 2015 is the turn of Ndi Igbo to produce the President of Nigeria and Kalu remains the best candidate to clinch the elusive position for Ndi Igbo.
They also condemned Gov. T. Orji’s leadership in the state saying that Abians are totally disappointed with the present administration. They however called on him to sit up and make efforts to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.
