The former governor of Abia state Orji Kalu has urged all Igbo people to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) party.

Kalu said joining the ruling party would ensure the people of South-East benefit from the national politics in Nigeria.

Speaking with journalists in Igbere, Bende local government area of Abia state, Kalu said the victories recorded in Edo and Ondo governorship elections is an indication that Nigerians have accepted APC.

He also said the south-East region will benefit more if their quit the opposition and joined the ruling party.

“Ndigbo should join APC to enable them to sit where other Nigerians are seated to decide on how to move the nation forward,” Kalu said.

“The APC electoral victories in Edo and Ondo clearly showed the popularity of the party.

“So, I did not make mistake in taking the Igbos into national politics, where other Nigerians are seated; that is where I want the Igbos to sit.

“So, there is nothing wrong in our joining APC for us to be able to sit where other Nigerians are seated. That is more important to me,” he said.

The former governor also said it is important for Igbo leaders to increase the number of the South-East members of APC.

He further commended President Muhammadu Buhari for fulfilling his promise to resume work on federal roads in the South-East.

“During my visit to the president, he made a promise to me and other leaders three months ago that all the contractors would be back to the federal roads before the end of November.

“Today, if you go to every federal road in Eastern Nigeria, you will see that all the contractors are back fully and this is why I joined APC.

“I didn’t join the party on selfish basis; I joined because the president made a promise and I have seen that the contractors are back to site.

“And if they are back, why can’t I believe him? He will do more,” Mr. Kalu said.

“All nations of the world are going through recession; Nigeria is not an exception.

“I am an international businessman; I am crying in all the countries I am doing business.

“From one country to the other, the story is the same; so we are crying there as we are crying in Nigeria.” the former governor said.
