Umahi, Orji Kalu meet in Abuja
Governor of Ebonyi State and new member of the ruling All progressive’s Congress (APC), Engr. David Umahi on Sunday evening met with the Senate Chief Whip and Southeast leader of the APC Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.
Both leaders are currently meeting at a private dinner in Abuja , where the Governor hosted the Senate chief whip and the highest elected political office holder from the southeast.
Recall that there have been insinuations in some quarters that the Governor’s defection to the APC from the PDP might create discord between him and Senator Orji Uzor-Kalu.
Recall, that barely two days after Governor Umahi’s formally joined the APC, there was media reports that Umahi’s defection to the APC may have led to disquiet amongst Southeast party stakeholders.
The reports were also taken seriously following the absence of some notable political figures of the party from the southeast which include at his formal defection which held on Thursday, November 19.
But, Kalu has dispelled the speculation of a possible faceoff between him and the governor following his absence from Umahi’s official defection from the Peoples Democratic Party to the APC held in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.
