Enugu — Former governor of Abia State Dr. Orji-Uzor Kalu yesterday visited the national headquarters of the Assemblies of God Nigeria where he reassured the people of the South East that the All Progressives Congress is not an Islamic party.
Kalu, who was received by the General Superintendent of the church, Rev. Dr Chidi Okorafor in Enugu, said since he joined the APC, he had been visiting bishops and other church leaders explaining to them why he joined the party "because our people have been deceived that APC is an Islamic party."
"I want to say that APC does not belong to President Buhari, the chairman of the party is Chief John Oyegun, a Knight of the Catholic Church; so I have continued to explain to church leaders that APC is one big family.
"That we are not what people think; we are a political party that will continue to strive to make Nigeria a better country. Rome was not built in a day, the economy is very difficult today, people are suffering, Nigerians are seeing the worst economic situation, but I know it will soon be over," he said.
