To this end, the group of politicians from Abia State, under the umbrella of Concerned Abia Leaders, called on the former governor not to waste his time for campaigns but face his alleged N7.6 billion corruption trial in court.

In a statement released in Abuja, yesterday, by their National Coordinator, Chief Ogbuagu Amadi, the Abia elders vowed to go ahead with its planned one million man-matches on December 16 to demand for speedy trial of the former governor in the N7. 6 bilioncase.

“Chief Orji Uzor Kalu has serious corruption case in court today. It is sad that such person was cleared and fielded by APC as its standard bearer for Abia N orth Senatorial seat in the 2019 election.

“The party has made a mistake by this action and it will cost it the seat as Kalu cannot deliver the senatorial district for the APC,” he said.
