The PDP House of Representatives candidate for Bende Federal Constituency Dr. Chima Anyaso on Friday suffered a serious setback as his supporters declared support for the former governor of Abia state and the APC flag bearer for Abia North senatorial District, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu and APC.
His trouble began when Chima Anyaso campaign team, PDP supporters saw the campaign train of OUK ‘Ward to Ward’ campaign tour in Asaga Ohafia community in over five buses marked ‘Chima Anyasom 2019’, were numbering over 100 and chose to pitch their tent with the widely loved Igbere born business tycoon.
According to an eyewitness, they were seen chanting various solidarity songs in support of the former governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu.
“Onwere weight” (he has weight), “Abuja direct”, “OUK for Senate”, amongst others, were some of the solidarity songs they sang while declaring support for the APC Abia North Senator hopeful.
One of the supporters who spoke to ABN TV on the condition of anonymity, said they have chosen to identify with progressive leadership in the state, rather than retrogressives’.
“We are here today to identify with our progressive leader and father, Chief Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu. We want to show our solidarity and to throw weight behind his ambition. We are solidly behind him and we’ll gladly cast our votes for him and the APC in the 2019 polls,” the source said.
Commenting on reason for their action, the source declared: “OUK is a performer. His projects are there for all to see. He has garnered large support from far and near since the day he declared to contest in the forthcoming elections. Look at our town, despite not being in government for the past 12 years now, he has attracted several road constructions from the Federal Government to the state. For this reason alone, we left our meeting venue immediately the information got to us that he’s here, we’ve decided to openly show support for his ambition.”
