Orji Uzor Kalu Slams Obasanjo, But Doesn’t Call His Name


Former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor
Kalu, whose court case of embezzlement
has been lying low since he decamped to
APC, has defended President Buhari once
again just after former President
Olusegun Obasanjo called him a failure.

Orji Uzor Kalu who led the National
Movement for Re-election of Muhammadu
Buhari team, to the Ake Palace of the Alake
and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba
Adedotun Gbadebo, in Abeokuta, the Ogun
State capital, said those who are criticising
Buhari now never obeyed the laws of the
land when they were in power.
According to him, past Nigerian leaders who
now resort to writing letters and speak out
in condemnation, never responded or acted
on the letters that were written to them
when they were in office.
“The greatest challenge of our country is
leaders not obeying the law. When they are
leaders, they don’t want to obey the law;
when they go out of leadership, they
criticise everybody who wants to obey the
law. This is the problem of the country. We
have had leaders who disobeyed every law
of the land.
We’ve also had leaders who were reckless
when they were leaders and when they go
out, they call people all kinds of name. We
have also seen leaders that have never seen
anything good in other people’s leadership,
they only know about themselves.
So, we want to thank you for the support…I
know you are close friend of President
Muhammadu Buhari and I want you to
maintain that friendship; don’t allow
anybody to distract you whether people
from here or from my area, stay in course.
President Buhari has not finished the job he
came to do.
If God gives him good health and long life,
he has not finished. He has to go for
another four years to be able to finish.
Despite people who are criticising and these
people also took no criticism when they
were in office. Despite people who are
writing letters; these people we also wrote
letters to them, they didn’t reply to our
own letters,” Kalu said
“In any democracy, there must be people
for and against. We are for Buhari, some
people are against and we wish them well.
And we want to thank you for the key role
of peace that you and other traditional
rulers have been playing. Nigeria unity is
non-negotiable. We are for oneness of this
country, we are for leaders who are sincere
to lead us well, we are for leaders who are
equally committed to the rules and tenets of
democracy, ” he added.
