Again, Orji Kalu Scolds Buhari’s Critics


Former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzo Kalu, has berated those accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of not doing enough to stop the killings in parts of the country.

According to him, “It is embarrassing when some people accuse the president of supporting one group to kill another. It is not possible for anyone directly elected by the people.

”Leaders should stop backbiting about the killings and all the rest of it. Killing is not a good process; no president would want to see his people dying.”

Kalu, who condemned the unwarranted killings, insisted that ”President Buhari has taken a new step, he was in Benue and Plateau the other time he is committed to make sure that this killing stop.”

Speaking at a party in honour of the outgoing Czech Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Pavel Mikes, in Abuja, the former governor described the killings as a big challenge for the country after the Federal Government defeated the Boko Haram.

”It is embarrassing to see human beings killing their fellow human beings. It is not acceptable by anyone created by God,” he said.

For the departing Ambassador, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain noted that his friendship with Nigeria has gone beyond his stay in the country, adding; ”We will remain friends after your departure.”

Kalu also thanked the envoy for his efforts, as Dean of European diplomatic corps, in ensuring that all levels of government in Nigeria maintain rule of law.

”When government fails to put rule of law as an instrument that can be of a great change, is a problem because rule of law is more important.

”It is software of a democratic process. Once you have the software right, the hardware will also be right,” he said.

Kalu expressed appreciation to the European Union for ensuring that Nigeria’s democracy stands.

In his remarks, Ambassador Mikes described Nigeria as a ”great, complex county” and that he enjoyed every moment of his five-year duty tour in Nigeria.

He lauded the former Governor, noting that ”he is passionate about the future of Nigeria, working hard to promote the country in the world.

”He is a man for whom Nigeria lies dearly in his heart and does everything possible to improve the lives of Nigerians” – NAN
