The recent visit of Chief Whip of the Senate and two term Governor of Abia state (1999-2007), Senator Orji Uzor Kalu on Friday to the Governor of Abia State, where he went into a closed door meeting with his host Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has ignited speculation that the Abia Governor is at the verge of dumping the PDP.

Ikpeazu received Kalu at his Umuobiakwa country home at Obinngwa LGA, Abia state

The Governor alongside his aides and personal staff who were already waiting for Kalu’s arrival, received the Senate Chief Whip at the Governor’s home at exactly 1:32PM.
A statement by his media office said Kalu was accompanied by his retinue of aides and security staff.
The statement indicated that Kalu disembarked from his official SUV and advanced to exchange greetings with the Abia Governor who was beaming with smiles on sighting the Senate Chief Whip.

The visit of the former Governor Orji Kalu who is regarded as the father of Abia Politics comes just a week after the Abia State Governor visited President Muhammadu Buhari on December 30th last year has fueled further the speculations that he intends to join the All Progressives Congress (APC). 

Also recent Photos on social media of Ikpeazu with President Buhari heightened various reactions.
It is believed that the visit is not un5qconnected with his rumoured intention to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Furthermore, the unexpected visit also comes less than a week after the People’s Democratic Party stakeholders in Arochukwu local government council, affirmed Orji Kalu’s Political supremacy, declaring the former Governor as their leader and father of Abia Politics.
