Ebonyi State Governor, Engr. David Umahi on Sunday paid a surprise visit to the Senate Chief Whip and Southeast leader of the APC, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.
According to ABN TV, 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.
This meeting is expected to go a long way in dispelling media reports that the Governor’s defection to the APC from the PDP may have created discord between him and Senator Orji Uzor-Kalu. Recall, that barely two days after Governor Umahi’s formally joined the APC, there were media reports that Umahi’s defection to the APC may have led to disquiet amongst Southeast party stakeholders
Both leaders are being tipped to launch an audacious campaign to replace President Muhammadu Buhari at the expiration of his tenure in 2023.
