Senator-elect Orji Uzor Kalu has accused some chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of working with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South East.
Speaking on Saturday in Enugu during the zonal stakeholders meeting of the APC, Kalu called for an investigation into the alleged anti-party activities on some chieftains of the party in the South East before and during the 2019 general elections.
The former Abia State governor said that he had it on good authority that some party chieftains in the zone sabotaged efforts of the party by aligning with the opposition.
According to NAN, Orji Kalu urged the leadership of the party in the zone to immediately raise a committee to investigate the allegations.
“One of the leaders of the party outside this zone told me that some of our chieftains including serving ministers negotiated with PDP governors to allow our party 25 per cent of vote cast at the polls.
“We have to fish out the people that said our party cannot afford 25 per cent vote for President Muhammadu Buhari and punish them.
“They sabotaged us. We cannot be working for the party and look like fools. Some of us worked but a few went to Abuja to say we cannot deliver,” he said.
Kalu said that such circumstance affected the performance of the party in the zone in the last election.
“There is no way the APC could not have won states like Abia and others but some of our leaders did this. We have to reveal and suspend them,” Kalu added.
