Former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor-Kalu, who doubles as the Chief Whip of the Senate, has denied allegations by Abia State chapter of APC that he is involved in anti-party activities against his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, saying there is no truth in such.

The former said this while appearing on a TV programme on TVC where he said he only has a younger brother by name, Mascot Uzor-Kalu who is seeking to be Governor of Abia State and he cannot deny brother’s constitutional right to aspire for a political office, insisting he is a loyal member of the APC and will always work for its success, dismissing claims that he is subtly working for Mascot’s success at the polls as against Ikechi Emenike who is the APC governorship candidate in Abia.

He said, “My brother has a right to contest to become governor, I am not my brother, my brother can aspire to anything he likes as far as the people take him into confidence, but me as a man, I cannot betray my party. “I will vote for my party, I will stand by my party, and anybody who wants to say anything, let the person go ahead and say it. I am APC man, the national chairman (Sen. Abdullahi Adamu) was my colleague, he knows I am a man of a very strong character”, he stated.

He said he has never campaigned against his party the APC and at the same time can’t stop his brother from seeking election. The Abia North Senator called on the people to ignore what he called gossip, stressing that the people of Abia will choose who they want as their governor.

He said the rumours against him is borne out of hatred, calling on Igbo to stop hating themselves and observe fairness at all times. Mascot Uzor-Kalu, a former chief of staff in the state is seeking governorship office on the platform of Action Peoples Party, APP.
