Kalu was received at the APC National Headquarters, Abuja, by the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odige-Oyegun and members of the National Working Committee (NWC).
He said that his defection to the APC was made possible by the persistence of some of the party’s chieftains who had been wooing him for some time. According to him, I was invited to dinner over 20 times by some of the party`s chieftains, including the national chairman, while the wooing lasted.
Kalu, however, said that it was a privilege to be accepted into the party, adding that he would abide by its laws while remaining a good party man. He thanked the APC national chairman and other party chieftains for the confidence they reposed in him and for making him join the party.
He assured that states being governed by opposition parties in the South-East and other parts of the country presently would be delivered to the APC in 2019.
