The lawmaker representing Abia North Senatorial District who is also the Chief Whip of the 9th Senate, Sen. Orji Kalu, has renewed the call for Igbos to work with President Muhammadu Buhari and appreciate him for the infrastructure in the South-East.
Kalu made this call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja, said that supporting Buhari would attract more federal projects to the region.
The lawmaker representing Abia North Senatorial District stressed that his zone would give Buhari more votes if given another opportunity.
According to the senator, it is on record that Abia North Senatorial zone is the only zone in the South-East and South-South that gave Buhari 68 per cent votes in the 2019 general elections.
“If we are given a chance to repeat what we did in 2019, I think the people will do more voting for him.
“From what President Buhari has done in my constituency, the votes might be higher than 68 per cent,’’ Kalu said.
The relationship with Abia North as a constituency is very cordial and the president has shown a lot of love to us and has remembered us with what we voted for, so we are excited.
“I encourage the Igbos to work with President Buhari to find a way to make amends and remove sentiments and work with the president so that in the remaining two years he can do more things for us before he leaves office,’’ Kalu said
