BREAKING: Gov Umahi Meets Orji Kalu; Hosts The Senator To Dinner (Photos) by BleedingPen: 8:00pm On Nov 22
Former Governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu is currently meeting with Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State.

Igbere TV reports that the Ebonyi governor, who recently decamped to the ruling All progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is hosting Sen. Orji Kalu.

Kalu, who is leader of the South East APC and highest elected political office holder from the zone, where Ebonyi falls under, is currently being hosted to a private dinner by Umahi in Abuja.

The meeting dispels media reports that the governor's recent defection to the APC from the PDP may have created discord between him and Sen. Orji Kalu.

Igbere TV recalls that barely two days after Umahi formally joined the APC, there were media reports that Umahi's defection to the APC may have led to disquiet amongst Southeast party stakeholders.

The reports were also heightened following the absence of some notable political figures of the party from the Southeast at his formal defection which held on Thursday, Nov. 19.

However, Senator Kalu in a chat with journalists on Saturday, dispelled the speculation of a possible faceoff between him and the governor following his absence from Umahi’s official defection from the PDP to the APC held in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.

Kalu revealed that the national leadership of the APC contacted him being a leader of the party in the geopolitical zone and that he explained he could not attend the event due to a national assignment he handled.

The Abia North senator said the President of the Senate had asked him to preside over a committee on the 2021 budget, while declaring that the Nigerian budget is more important than the official declaration ceremony.

I'm a PDP apologist till tomorrow...

But I will vote that ticket if APC can make it possible.

And Zulum should succeed Umahi without hassles after 8 years.

And Nigeria will set sail on the path of greatness.

That would be patriotism!

But trust me... APC Fulani power brokers won't let Zulum be Vice. You know Zulum is Kanuri.

So they will definitely want a pure Fulani blood to pair with whoever wins the ticket from the South.

I think Elrufai as VP is a foregone conclusion within the APC circle.

Whether Osinbajo, Fayemi, Amaechi, OUK or Umahi wins the presidential ticket.

The APC should present Okonjo iweala as their presidential candidate, why? grin Are you guys not even a supporter of the PDP Why can't okonjo iweala and sanusi contest under the PDP.

The APC will be producing either Tinubu or Osinbanjo. You can take that to the bank.

You are the one who is reasoning like you are in the United states wake up, this is Nigeria, if those two change to APC before 2022, the reality will be like a movie to you, Nigeria that they can even invite someone from the other party just two weeks before primary, look at Edo, do you think if Ambode decamped to PDP that they would not have given him ticket, please focus on your tinubu or Osinbajo, we are also strategizing with our people
