*Says APC’s Never An Islamic Party
Former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu has called on the people of Ekiti State to vote massively for the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi ahead of Saturday’s Governorship Election in the state, in order to clean up the economic mess caused by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Kalu, who was in Ekiti State to canvass for more support for Dr Fayemi, pleaded to all Ndigbo to pen their vote for a man that understand the job better and not a ‘mediocre’, who has rubbished the integrity of the state.
“You have to vote for a man that is better equipped for the job. Don’t listen to the rumour that APC is an Islamic party.
“When President Muhammadu Buhari came, he inherited a massively looted economy. The PDP people were just going to the Central Bank of Nigeria to collect money on the order of the then President.
“You know what it means for the CBN to be looted and that was why we experienced the economic recession when Buhari came and today we are out of it.
“APC remains the best party for Ndigbo. I cannot be bribed by anybody to deceive you. I would rather die than to deceive you because we are one.
“President Buhari did the second Niger Bridge. He had also awarded many road contracts in the Southeast. Did former President Olusegun Obasanjo, late Umaru Yar’Adua and Dr Goodluck Jonathan did all these?
“President Buhari might not have given us many appointments, but he had performed for the Southeast in terms of facilities and public utilities.
“If President Buhari is bad, I will be the first person to expose him. Please, vote for APC in this election. Make sure you spread the gospel and you will never regret it.
“He has promised to give you appointments in governments and give you other supports and I know the promise shall be fulfilled.”
