Kalu made the remark at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, before travelling to Dubai. “We are rebranding the PDP now and we will come out stronger after it’’, he said
He also said Nigeria would not disintegrate either now or in the near future stressing that the nation would continue to wax stronger. “We need the country more than the country needs us.
