3 min read

Coalition of Democratic Watchdogs of Nigeria has called for the recall of the Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu, an erstwhile governor of Abia State.

According to Dr. Nwakor Chibuzor who spoke on behalf of the coalition, he said that the good people of Abia North do not deserve Orji Uzor Kalu.

“By this utterance of Orji Kalu, the people of Abia North who are 100% Christians should immediately commence a recall of Orji Kalu from the Senate as it is evident that he is not representing Abia North, Dr. Chibuzor said,

An excerpt is the full text of the press briefing:

Good morning gentlemen of the fourth realm and welcome to this press briefing.
No doubt the issue of choosing a running mate by the two main political parties (that is, the APC and the PDP) has dominated the media space and national discussion especially as the electoral management body (INEC) has issued 17th June 2022 as the deadline for the submission of names for the Vice Presidential Candidates for all political parties. The fundamental issue is the combination in terms of the Muslim/Christian ticket or the Muslim/Muslim ticket. In other words, a Muslim from the North, and a Christian from the South or vice-vasa. This balance essential is to ensure that equitable representation of both Muslims and Christians alike in the nation’s highest executive arm of government. Moreover, the 1999 construction of the federal republic of Nigeria as amended provides for the Federal Character in other to ensure equity, balance, and fair representation across the nation.
You would all agree with me that the Nigerian state has never been this polarized, aligned and divided along religious and tribal sentiments and affiliations. Hence both the AREWA and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN)has warned against the looming jeopardy that would associate the Muslim/Muslim ticket by the APC in the country if Bola Tinubu make the mistake of fielding the Muslim/Muslim ticket.
Now, the Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu, an erstwhile governor of Abia State, who has been charged and convicted by the court for 7.6 Billion Naira fraud by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is yet at it again. Mr. Orji Uzor, a supposed Christian, emphatically stated his unalloyed support for a Muslim/Muslim ticket for the APC Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu. He further emphasized that his own interest is for the APC to win the election. In other words, for the Chief Whip, equity does not matter, fair representation for Christians and Muslims alike doesn’t matter, the provision of Federal Character as entrenched in the Nigerian constitution does not matter, for him, it is all about winning the and election. Recall also that the same Orji Uzor Kalu had previously declared his unalloyed support for the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan. He even stated that he prefers to be a cleaner in the Aso Rock Villa provided that Ahmed Lawan wins as President of the federal republic of Nigeria. What a multi-faceth character! This is absurd and gross irresponsibility of the highest order. No Christian has sold out to this level in Nigerian history. How did the people of Abia North Senatorial District deteriorate to this level? It is unfortunate because the good people of Abia North do not deserve this satanic incarnate. A Lucifer personified and the antichrist of our time. By this utterance of Orji Kalu, the people of Abia North who are 100% Christians should immediately commence a recall of Orji Kalu from the Senate as it is evident that he is not representing Abia North. People like Orji Uzor should not be found in public service as his interest is personal and selfish. For oscillating like a pendulum, from Ahmed Lawan to Tinubu, and to Muslim/Muslim ticket, Uzor Kalu has demonstrated inconsistency and no recourse whatsoever to the people of Abia North he claims to be representing, therefore he should be treated as his I’ll conduct depicts. Orji Uzor Kalu is an anti-Christian, anti-Igbo and anti Abia North.
Thank you.
