The former governor made this known in a statement made available to Naija News by his Special Adviser, Kunle Oyewumi on Tuesday.
Kalu attributed the news of his planned departure from the ruling party by online news platforms to the handiwork of political jobbers and speculators.
While describing himself as an unrepentant member of the APC, and a strong activist, he added that the party “remains the only political party to salvage Nigeria from the atrocities of the previous administrations.’’
While vowing not to rejoin PDP for whatever reason, Kalu called on those spreading fake news to look for other means of survival as against cheap political blackmail and character assassination.
Kalu added that with the achievement of President Muhammadu Buhari in the South East Region of the country, the APC is now spreading it tentacles in the region.
NAN report that the former governor said he remained not only a prominent member of the APC, but a committed supporter of President Buhari, with no apologies to anyone.
“My attention has been drawn to a news report in some online media that I am set to dump the APC for the PDP. The malicious report is not only laughable but mischievous.
“This is another attempt by enemies of progress to cause disaffection and confusion in the APC. I remain a solid and committed member of the APC.
“Those behind the falsehood should seek attention from legitimate pursuits.
“I am not bothered and will not lose sleep over the activities of political jobbers.
“It is no longer news that I will be vying for a seat in the Senate (Abia North) under the APC in 2019.
“I will rather quit politics than to return to the PDP because the APC is the only political party that will take Nigeria to enviable heights,’’ he stressed.
Kalu, who further assured that power would change in Abia State come 2019, appreciated the members of the APC in the state for their unwavering support for president Buhari
