Former Abia State Governor, Orji Kalu, says the All Progressives Congress (APC) grows stronger everyday.
The Senate Chief Whip boasted that its growth will be felt nationwide in 2023.
He spoke on Thursday at his country home in Igbere when he welcomed thousands of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) faithful into the APC.
Kalu received them on behalf of the State Chairman, Donatus Nwankpa, and the National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Governor Mai Buni.
The lawmaker urged the decampees to work for the party’s victory in the next general elections.
He described APC as a disciplined party that prioritizes the welfare of the citizens.
“We are a party that encourages people to pay workers’ salaries, pensions, build roads and take care of society. Our business is to think and work toward the welfare of Abia, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi, Anambra people and Nigerians”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“Today is a remarkable day. I welcome you to this great party, which is for all Nigerians. We believe that this party will make all of us proud. The party believes in the rule of law; it believes things should be done well and believes in Nigerians.”
Kalu added that the defection of the PDP members confirmed the APC was the best for Abia and the country.
