Against the backdrop of speculations about his interest in the 2019 Presidential Election, former Abia Governor, Orji Uzor-kalu, has denied looking in that direction.
He said posters circulating across the country and indicating his desire to contest the 2019 Presidential election on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), must be the work of those against the party.
The former governor reaffirmed his commitment to the continuation of President Muhammadu Buhari in office if he intends to contest in 2019.
“The action of these jobless politicians is a ploy to damage the robust relationship I have with President Buhari and the top hierarchy of the APC.”
“Such political blackmail is not only disheartening but unhealthy for Nigeria’s growing democracy.”
He urged the political elite to obey the rules and the followers to be careful who they follow adding that selfless service should be the yard stick for following leaders.
