The group also alleged that the former Abia governor created APP to sponsor his brother’s governorship ambition, the allegation he denied months ago, However, the group asked Kalu to choose between the APC and the APP which party he owed his loyalty to. Meanwhile, ahead of the 2023 election, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Babatunde Gbadamosi has defected to the Labour Party (LP). Gbadamosi, who disclosed the latest development in a statement on Friday, expressed displeasure over how the senatorial bye-election panned out after the event of EndSars. However, his hope was rekindled following the emergence of Peter Obi as the presidential candidate of LP and his choice of Yusuf Baba-Ahmed as running mate.

He further said he had resigned his membership from PDP and subsequently declared support for the LP presidential flagbearer.
