A former Abia State governor and current Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has met with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike in Port Harcourt, saying his host will join the ruling, All Progressives Congress (APC) soon.
Kalu stated this while fielding questions from journalists after his host had led him on a project inspection around Port Harcourt, the State capital on Thursday.
The former governor commended Wike for his investments in critical infrastructure with a call on him to work harmoniously with the APC led government at the centre.
He [Wike] is a man needed by us in the APC, it is my belief that a messiah can come from anywhere.
“I urge the Governor to partner with the APC, I discussed with him all through the night to find a common ground with the APC. I believe that very soon it shall come to reality.
“So I urge Governor Wike to soft pedal on our party, humans can switch from one party to another which is human behavior in Africa.
I appeal to him to partner with us so that the good people of Rivers can benefit more from the Federal Government of Nigeria,” he said.
