Abia - Former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, has formally joined the All Progressives congress, Punch reports.
Kalu was received by the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee of the party at the National Secretariat on Wednesday.
He said he has succumbed to pressures from his friends and well wishers to contribute his quota to building the party in Nigeria especially in the South East.
The former governor earlier resigned his membership of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) according to News24.
PPA was founded by Kalu in 2006 and had produced T. A. Orji and Ikedi Ohakim as Governors of Abia and Imo States respectively in the 2007 elections.
