Senator Orji Kalu Distances Self From Purported List of Ahmad Lawan Campaign Organisation
President of the Senate and Chairman of the National Assembly, Senator Ahmad Lawan is one of the Presidential aspirants on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a statement which he personally signed, the lawmaker who represents Abia North in the Senate said; "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 should our most preferred candidate, Senator Ahmad Lawan emerge 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" he concluded.
