Former Abia State governor and Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr Orji Uzor has described the report which says, he has been appointed as Ahmed Lawan presidential campaign Director-General as fake.
According to a statement by Senator Kalu, the report should be disregarded as there was no authorization given to the effect of its publication.
Kalu in the statement also explained that as he is running for election to return to the senate, the task of who will be the campaign DG of Lawan should be given to a sitting governor who is not running for an election
The statement reads, “My attention has been drawn to a list of committee Chairmen of Ahmad Lawan Campaign Organization in which I was also mentioned as the Director General.
“The list should be disregarded as no authorization was given to the effect of its publication.
“As the Chairman of the meeting held at my instance, it is important to notify the general public that we are not yet in the Campaign proper. A committee will be inaugurated to that effect once our most preferred candidate, Senator Ahmad Lawan emerges as the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC).
“I am also running for election in my senatorial district and would rather recommend a sitting Governor who is not running for an election to chair the campaign team at the right time.
“Several private visitors who were not even part of the meeting were also reported to have been in attendance. Senator Betty Apiafi just as Senator Uche Ekwunife who visited on a different bipartisan matter concerning the senate was also mentioned.
“It is mischief to have included these names as part of Ahmad Lawan Campaign Organization”
