The Peoples Democratic Party has been warned by a chieftain of the party in Abia State, Isaac Nkole against re-admitting Senate Chief-Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu into the party.
Nkole while speaking with newsmen on Thursday said Kalu “is in a desperate move to return to the PDP having discovered that his days in the All Progressive Congress APC are numbered”.
The PDP chieftain also stated that the Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi is allegedly making contacts to return to the main opposition party, having discovered that he was deceived into joining the All Progressives Congress.
According to Nkole, the former Governor of Abia State has been meeting with stakeholders in the party to allow him to return to the party.
The PDP chieftain who described Kalu as “spoiler and political liability”, warned that his return to the party “is not in the best interest of the party.”
He said, “I want to advise the leadership of PDP both in Abia and national to be careful not to allow Senator Orji Uzor Kalu return to our great party because his return will destroy PDP.
“I’m raising this alarm because we heard that he is making contacts with the party big wigs begging for the door to be opened for him to come back.
“He knows he is already at the end of the road in APC as the party’s structure is off his grip. His political fate is sealed because his faction of the party is not the one recognised by Abuja.
“Knowing the implications for him and others in 2023, that’s why he’s making desperate efforts to return to PDP but we don’t need people like him to infest our part.
“We heard that Gov. Dave Umahi also wants to return to PDP. They have all discovered that they made the wrong decision by joining APC in the first place. That’s why they all want to return but PDP is tired of political liabilities and desperados without ideology”.
