Kalu said:

“Take note that the Enugu event qualifies as a ‘campaign activity’ but Gover­nor Ikpeazu is still a principled member of the G5 and a leader in the PDP.
“He will continue to attend programmes, within and outside the state, that are not campaign related.
“Governor Ikpeazu, in partic­ular, every well-meaning mem­ber of our political family (PDP) and, indeed, Abians in general, are not in any mood for any po­litical gathering at this point in time."
