Buhari will win 75% vote in 2019 election – Kalu
Ex-Governor of Abia State, Orji Kalu, has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari would win over 75 per cent of votes in the South-East in the 2019 general elections.
Kalu made this known during an expanded meeting of the executive members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Igbere, Bende Local Government Area of Abia.
He said, “The party has the antidote against rigging and what it takes to win the polls at all levels in 2019.
“We will never allow anybody to rig us out of elections in Abia again. We shall match them force by force and money for money,” he said.
He urged APC leadership not to be weighed down by the gale of defections from the party, saying that “defection is a personal decision.
“It is their decision to defect to other parties, but it is also our choice to remain in APC.”
Kalu stressed the need for APC to nominate credible candidates that would dislodge any opponent of its governorship candidates, in State and National Assemblies.
“The power to elect the party flag bearers is in your hands.
“Give us good candidates and we will match the powers-that-be in the state, any how they want it.
“You should not vote for aspirants on sentiments. Vote for aspirants based on their track record and proven competence.”
