Lawan 2023: Orji Kalu dissociates self from publication on DG appointment
The Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has debunked the viral publication on his alleged appointment as the Director-General of the campaign organization of Dr. Ahmed Lawan, in pursuit of the latter’s 2023 presidential ambition.
In his refuttal, Senator Kalu wrote:
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
