A special mass has been held for the victory of Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu as Deputy Senate President of the soon-to-be inaugurated Ninth National Assembly, Igbere TV reports.

Igbere TV reports that the mass service held today at St. Andrews Catholic Church, Umuoka in Udi, Enugu State.

This is coming ahead of Tuesday, June 11 inauguration of the Ninth Parliament and constitution of NASS leadership.

Speaking at the event, the Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Dr. Evans Offor said the service was organized for Kalu, a committed Catholic, to intercede for him to triumph in Tuesday’s election at the Red Chambers.

The cleric said that he has watched Kalu over the years and found him to be credible and a detribalized Nigerian with great charisma.

Dr Offor noted that in the past Kalu is known to have brokered peace among some Nigerian leaders who had disagreements.

He pointed out that the contacts of Kalu, both in the political, social and religious circles, have remained unequalled as he is a known bridge builder.

He, therefore, urged the APC “to support this illustrious Igbo son in his ambition and elect him as the DSP,” saying that “the gesture will solidify the acceptance of the party in the Southeast zone.”
