Former Chief of Staff to Abia state government, Revd (Mrs) Jemimah Kalu has cautioned the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) against spreading rumours against the person of the former governor of Abia state and the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Abia North, Dr. Orji Kalu.

Reacting to a false report on social media platforms that Kalu hoarded sensitive materials in his Igbere country home, the former permanent secretary, called on security agencies to beef up security in Abia state, adding that the PDP candidates in the state had thumb-printed ballot papers before the election was cancelled.

Addressing market women and youths in Igbere on Saturday, the former permanent secretary faulted Abia state government for using the collective resources of the state to buy votes at N10,000 each, noting that the Governor Okezie Ikpeazu-led government had deprived Abians of good governance.She said, “the people of Abia North senatorial district have adopted Kalu as their sole candidate.

“The PDP has been spreading fake news that the former governor hoarded ballot papers in his residence in an attempt to blackmail the APC candidate for Abia North.

“The PDP candidates in Abia state have been buying and stocking voter’s cards before the cancelled presidential and national assembly elections.

“The senatorial candidate of the PDP, Mao Ohuabunwa with the support of Senator T. A Orji, has been terrorising the people of Abia North”.

The retired civil servant urged the people of Abia North senatorial zone to resist any form of electoral fraud, adding that the APC will come out victorious in the rescheduled election.
