After several months of speculations about his political future, the former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, on Wednesday, November 16, formally joined the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Kalu, has been involved in an intense legal battle, to avoid conviction for charges of corruption, leveled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The move came barely 24 hours after he resigned his membership of the Progressive Peoples Alliance, PPA, a party he formed, and nurtured for several years.
Kalu, who was elected Governor of Abia State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 1999, governed the State for eight years, before he moved away to form the PPA.
Speaking at the APC National Secretariat in company of the former Governor of Osun State, and Chieftain of the APC, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, Kalu stated that he had finally joined the party where most of his family members belong.
He said that after a long period of wooing by members of the APC National Working Committee, NWC, and other Chieftains of the party across the country, he considered it pertinent to join the party.
Asked why he decided to join APC, he said: “It is a simple thing. You were here the day my mother and my brothers came here, and all my friends are here.
“You can see Governor Oyinlola, you can see Governor (Segun) Oni. I am not saying my friends are not in the other parties, but it is time to take stock, and it is important to go along family line to be able to re-brand Nigeria very well. So, I am back to join where my family is.”


He explained, that he did not join the APC earlier, because he did not want people to think that he wanted to be part of the ruling party, in order to be among those being appointed into government positions.
“If I had joined earlier when they were forming government, it would look like I was trying to form government with them. This is the right time to join. This is the middle time of the whistle, between now and the next season to do politics. I am joining at the right time, to be able to do politics with them, the raw politics.”
National Chairman of the APC, John-Oyegun, who received Kalu into the party, described him as an asset to the party. and Nigeria.
According to Oyegun, the former Governor was coming with a lot of political experience, and business acumen, that would help to build the APC, and revamp the ailing economy.
“I have to welcome you most sincerely to APC family. Today, in this place, you have to look for the kind of people with courage, resilience, and with following, that can contribute positive ideas from experience, from training to take this nation out of the economic mess we are in.
“When he (Kalu) called me, and said he has joined APC, I said this man has started again, and I picked my phone and called the State Chairman, and asked: Is it true that Orji Uzor Kalu has joined APC, and the State Chairman said, it is true. He has properly registered in his ward, but we have not received him. I said don’t worry yourself, I will receive him, because there is no time,” Oyegun said.
