The Senate election bid of former governor of Abia State and business mogul, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu received further boost yesterday when a coalition of pressure groups in the state resolved to back his candidacy for Abia North senatorial rerun.

In a release, Coordinating Secretary of the group, Mba C. I. Kalu, said the coalition, after its meeting held in Aba yesterday which was attended by over 240 of their members from Old Bende zone resolved to give Kalu full support.

Kalu said the decision was taken after members x-rayed the contemporary political situation in Nigeria as it affects the Igbo man and were convinced that no effort would be spared to see that only men who have the will power and determination to face challenges affecting Igbo interests in Nigeria are allowed to represent them.


“Having x-rayed the contemporary political situation in Nigeria as it effects the Igbo man, we are convinced that no effort will be spared to see that the people we project as leaders or representatives are men who have the will-power, determination and the capacity to face the challenges affecting Igbo interest in Nigeria.

“We are convinced that Kalu is one man who has the quality we need at the Senate now, hence, we have resolved to give him our unwavering support.”

The release further stated that the coalition’s choice of Kalu over and above other contestants was predicated on his “outspoken nature and parameters of thought which places public good over personal interest. Ndigbo needs a man with such quality in the Senate,” the groups stated.
