The All Progressives Congress in Bende Local Government Area, Abia State, has praised Senator Orji Uzor Kalu's reelection as the senator representing Abia North in the National Assembly.



Senator Kalu previously served as the state's governor.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, or INEC, just finished conducting the presidential and senatorial elections on February 25. Kalu was successfully re-elected.

Mao Ohuabunwa of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who received 15,175 votes, and Nnamdi Iroh of the Labour Party, who received 25,540 votes, were Kalu's two main rivals. Kalu defeated them both with 30,805 votes. The returning officer for INEC, Chinedu Nnamdi, announced Kalu as the winner of the Abia North senatorial zone election at the Ohafia collation center.

Kalu's election as the current Majority Chief Whip of the Senate has shocked the party, according to Prince Ulu Onwuchekwa, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress chapter in the Abia Local Government Area, who made the statement on Thursday.

Onwuchekwa described Kalu’s triumph in the recently-conducted senatorial poll in Abia North district as well deserved.

The APC leadership, according to him, commended members of the party and the electorate across all electoral wards of the local government areas under the Abia North senatorial zone for reaffirming their trust in one of the country's finest leaders through the ballots.

The party also reaffirmed its unwavering belief in Senator Kalu’s character, capacity, and competence to represent the senatorial zone in the yet-to-be-inaugurated 10th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Appealing to all politicians to sheath their swords and work for the common good of the zone, Onwuchekwa said: “To opponents and political fraternal comrades who just lost out, we at APC Bende LGA appreciate your doggedness and participation, which helped to enrich and virilize the democratic space, and we urge you to accept your defeat with equanimity and stoicism and to rally support for Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.”
