PDP Didn’t Win Elections In S’east – Kalu by Islie: 1:10am On May 19, 2015
A former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, says the Igbo did not vote for the Peoples Democratic Party in the last general election in the South-East, maintaining that the PDP massively rigged the election in the region.

Kalu, who was an ardent supporter of President Goodluck Jonathan before the elections, said this during a programme on Channels TV titled, “View from the Top,” on Monday.

The former governor said out of the five states in the South-East, the PDP only won elections in Ebonyi and Enugu states.

He said it would, therefore, be unfair to accuse the Igbo of voting en masse for the PDP.


Kalu said the people of Abia State voted against the PDP because of their feelings towards Governor Theodore Orji and the overbearing nature of the President’s wife, Patience Jonathan.

The former governor, who lost the Abia-North senatorial election on the platform of the Progressives Peoples Alliance, maintained that he did not lose but that the PDP rigged the election.
He said, “The issue is that what happened in my constituency was a rigged election. Apart from Enugu and Ebonyi states, where the PDP had very good outings, every other state they won in the South-East was rigged.

“So, the Igbo did not make any mistakes, I feel bad when I see people blaming the Igbo. In the presidential election, the result brought out from Abia where I was, did not reflect the voting pattern of the people.

“In Aba, I can tell you and I will tell Jonathan, that he did not win election in Aba. The APC won the election there but when I saw the result, it was a different thing because the people were angry because of the attitude of T. A Orji and the occasional interference of the wife of the President. People were angry.”

Kalu said it would be unfair to criticise a geopolitical zone for voting en masse for a party, adding that in 1999, the South-West voted massively for the then Alliance for Democracy even though Olusegun Obasanjo of the PDP is from the zone.

The former governor said the PDP lost the general election because of its greed and superiority complex.

He said he and a former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, had planned to form a merger around 2007 but his political associates in the South-East thwarted the plans.

He said he was not surprised that Tinubu went on to form Nigeria’s biggest opposition party which finally defeated the PDP.

He said, “The PDP was bound to lose the elections because many people were very greedy. There was impunity; people in the party felt they were mini gods. And when you feel that God Almighty is no longer God and that you are the new God, you are bound to fail and that was what happened.

“The PDP felt that they could afford anything money could buy. My brothers, the Igbo didn’t understand the local politics. What you see in the country today was planned by Bola Tinubu and me.

“He is alive, you can ask him. He planned to go with the Action Congress and I planned to go with the PPA. We said at the same time, we could come back to the stage but the two governors we had from the South-East were not as forthright as Governor Babatunde Fashola. Fashola was the only AC governor at the time.”

Why are some people making it seem like the South east needs to apologies for their choice in the last election?
What is wrong with the S'east voting en masse for PDP? After all, the North also did that for APC or is it because the party that the S'east supported finally lost?
People have the right to vote for any party/candidate in an election. That is democracy and that is why it is called a contest - to see who finally gets more votes.

It is therefore unrealistic to expect the entire country to vote for one party.

So there is nothing wrong with the S'east voting en masse for their preferred party (PDP) the same way nobody is criticizing the North for voting en mass for their own preferred party (APC)

See Orji Kalu, 8 years and nothing to show as governor, except installing a prisoner named Theo Orji as Gov for 8 more wasteful years, with a PDP state assembly and national assembly members to match

This guy has an uncontrollable leaking mouth, if he is talking about the southeast I know then he has lost it cos Buhari wouldn't have gotten 5% of our vote if not for the evil scheme of APC that day by blowing bomb in Enugu and Anambara maybe his Grandpa might still be wailing with his large daura handkerchief by now.


Uzor kalu we din't vote for APC is our choice and you have to respect that, you can speak for yourself and lost souls like you but not for the entire Southeast region.

OUK is the most confused,frustrated and unreliable politician in SouthEast today. .(The devil he unleashed on Abians really dealt with him to the extent he was pushed out of pdp)

Currently he is in the camp of Apc tomorrow in PDP and when he couldn't achieve his aim,he is back to ppa.
Kalu lied that GEJ lost in Abia state.He is saying this because he is now in apc.

Orji Uzor kalu is a liar from the pits of hell!!

The south east is/was totally for Jona & their votes showed it, thank God for SCR/PVCs. They prevented what could have been a big bloodbath.

The only reason Baba got votes from Imo is cos of Rochas and his doggedness!

I'm an unrepentant Buharist and I know that.

Shut up this morning... Good morning to you anyway.

This man is not talking about Presidential elections. He is talking about other elections which is true.

In Abia APGA won the guber race but PDP stole the mandate, power pf incumbency.
In Imo PDP won the election but APC overshadowed them, power pf incumbency.
Anambra was not in governorship things this year.

But Anambra is a CORE PDP state. APGA would have done better if not because of some issues bothering on internal party wrangling.

So do not drag GEJ into this matter.

Igbos voted for GEJ... In my polling unit APC got one vote only

We all knew that PDP did not win the election in the South East as claimed but was massively rigged in favour of Jonathan, since the result there did not have effect on the overall outcome of the election we careless. However Kalu should shot up, he is a chameleon, we all know his antics, he's already scheming to warm his way to APC and he should be informed that he's not welcome, there more credible men from Igbo land that APC could make up with than Kalu.

Don't mind the guy joor. Your brothers are making tireless efforts to get into the good books of "aboki and Yoruba" APC.

I wonder how these people would have boasted if GEJ had won.

In Abia, APGA did put up a strong showing but Buhari or APC in Ndi-Igbo?
Why is Kalu telling lies to himself?
