The National Chairman of the Progressive Peoples Alliance PPA, Chief Sam Nkire has reacted to the news of Dr Orji Kalu’s return to the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, saying it would not affect the party. Nkire said in a statement that as a founding member of PDP, Kalu was free to return to the party or any party of his choice for that matter.
Nkire said the former Abia State Governor left his party about two years ago and that the party had been function ever since. He said political parties were built like churches and mosques with at least two doors: one for entrance and other for exit but without restrictions whatsoever. Nkire said even though his party would have prefered Kalu returning to PPA instead of PDP, there was no love lost between Dr Kalu and members of PPA.
According to the PPA boss his party was currently seeking alliances with other political parties even as it is restructuring and strengthening the party in states across the country. He urged PPA members throughout the federation not to be discouraged by the sad news but to continue their door-to-door campaign for membership, as according to him “the future of PPA looks brighter everyday”.
