After officially joining the all progressives congress (APC) yesterday, former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu has said he joined the party because that is where his family members belong. He denied joining because of his travails in the hands of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. While speaking to journalists yesterday after being welcomed by the party chairman, John Oyegun, kalu said;
“All my friends are here. I am not saying my friends are not in the other party but it’s time to take stock. It is important to go along family lines in order to rebrand Nigeria. I am back to join where my family are.
“If I had joined earlier at the time they were forming government, it would look like I am trying to join them to form government. This is the right time for me to join because this is the middle time between now and the next season to do politics. I am joining now to be able to play raw politics.”
