Former Governor of Abia state and Senator-elect, Abia North Senatorial District, Dr. Orji Kalu has debunked rumours that he (Kalu) nominated his younger brother and a cousin, Hon. Mascot Kalu and Dr.Madukwe Ukaegbu respectively for ministerial appointments.
An online media platform had a few days ago reportedly published on its website that Kalu submitted his younger brother’s name and his cousin’s for consideration for ministerial positions which has generated a lot of bad bloods in the state, especially amongst the All Progressives Congress (APC) Party members from Ukwa part of the state that has been agitating for a ministerial slot.
In a statement issued by Kalu’s media office at weekend, the former Abia governor urged the general public to disregard the false news, adding that it is the handiwork of mischief makers and political jobbers, who are envious of the growing popularity of the APC in Abia State.
He said, ” we condemn in totality the news reported by PUO Reports that former Governor of Abia state, Dr. Orji Kalu has nominated his brother and cousin, Hon. Mascot Kalu and Dr. Madukwe Ukaegbu respectively for ministerial appointment.
“The fake news being peddled by PUO Reports is another attempt by political jobbers to score cheap political points.
” We advise the management of PUO Reports to apologize to the Senator-elect, Abia North Senatorial District within seven days otherwise face the wrath of the law for blackmailing Kalu”
