2019 election: APC will battle PDP with force, money – Orji Kalu
Former Abia state governor, Orji Kalu, has declared that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was prepared to tackle the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election.
Kalu spoke on Sunday in an interview with newsmen in his Camp Neya country home in Igbere, Bende Local Government Area of the state.
The APC candidate in Abia North Senatorial District expressed confidence that the party would have landslide victory in all the elections.
“The party has the antidote against rigging. We will never allow anybody to rig us out in Abia again. We shall match them force by force and money for money,” he said.
He further dispelled the speculation that the president hated Ndigbo, saying that Buhari had done for the area what PDP government could not do in their 16 years.
Kalu cited the ongoing rehabilitation of the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, Enugu-Onitsha Expressway and the construction of the second Niger Bridge as some of Buhari’s major projects in the area, to buttress his point.
He said: “I don’t know why people always say that Buhari hates the Igbos because I know Buhari very well. He is a friend to Ndigbo. Am I not a friend to President Buhari?
“I know that on February 16, Abia will give him more than 85 per cent of their votes.”
