Mother of the former governor of Abia State, Elder Mrs Eunice Uzor Kalu, who is also the leader of the Reality Organisation in the South-East, has decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) alongside Dr Orji Uzor Kalu’s brothers, Mascot Uzor Kalu and Hon Nnanna Uzor Kalu.

This was the highpoint of the visit of President-elect, General Mohammadu Buhari, to Imo State to thank the people for voting for him as well as asking them to also vote for Governor Rochas Okorocha and APC House of Assembly candidates in Saturday elections.

Speaking at a Town Hall meeting in Owerri, Buhari gave assurance that APC will experience credible polls in South East and South-South, better than what happened during the Presidential and National Assembly elections two weeks ago.

The President-elect noted that South-East states have exhibited courage and commitment and so deserve the system of change to be brought by the incoming APC government.

“Okorocha and the governors of Rivers and Edo have shown courage to the system of APC. The vote of the people is their strength and if it is allowed to count, they can vote out a government that does not meet their expectations and this is what the APC government stands for,” he said.

While promising to give the South-East zone a level playing ground in his administration, he urged the electorate to vote all the APC governorship candidates at the weekend’s election.

Buhari also expressed his happiness over the appreciation of naira immediately he was declared the winner of the presidential polls, describing it as the handiwork of God for the change he talked about.
Governor Okorocha, in his speech earlier, commended President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat, describing his action as maturity.

He described Buhari as a stabiliser who is coming in at a critical time of the nation, while urging him to carry everybody along. He reminded the President-elect of the trauma the Igbo are going through in the North.

“Let me now remind you that you are the President of the country and not of APC alone; so we urge you to carry everybody along. Today, we shall have a new Nigeria. Buhari Okechukwu is a President of a new Nigeria. Igbo are going through pains in the North and we hope that you will help us,” Okorocha said.

Present at the event were the National Chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, Senator Chris Ngige, Prince Eze Madumere, Elder (Mrs.) Eunice Orji Kalu, Senator Osita Izunaso, the Imo State House of Assembly Speaker, Ben Uwajumogu, among other APC leaders across the South East.
