Orji Kalu Offers To Replace Buhari In Dialogue With Boko Haram by PaulJohn1: 7:16am On Nov 11, 2012
A former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, has offered to dialogue with Boko Haram on behalf of the Federal Government.

Mr. Kalu made the offer following a purported proposal by the sect requesting a former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, to dialogue with government on its behalf. Mr. Buhari has since declined the role.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Emeka Obasi, Kalu said there was nothing wrong with the refusal of the offer by Buhari, adding that he was in a position to talk with the group for the return of peace to the country.

He said that having lived in the hotbed of Boko Haram activities, Maiduguri in Borno State and being a prominent South Easterner, which has been largely affected by the activities of the group, he was in a position to marry the feeling of the actors in the dialogue process.
Mr. Obasi quoted Kalu as saying: “General Buhari took a laudable step by opting out.
“For one who contested the 2011 presidential election, meeting with Boko Haram may be misconstrued because many believe that the group’s activities heightened after the emergence of President Goodluck Jonathan.”

Mr. Kalu, who is also the protem leader of the nascent socio-cultural organisation, Njiko Igbo, added: “Ndigbo have suffered enough.
“Their businesses have been destroyed, lives lost. Nigeria is their country. I do not see why they cannot walk freely from Maiduguri to Mubi, from Borno to Bauchi. I lived in Maiduguri. I still own properties there. I know the terrain.

“We can sit down and dialogue on the condition that the group will cease all bombing activities in Nigeria. In the interest of peace, I think government should accept the peace move. Previously, they were almost faceless. Now, there is a window for peace. It is always good to jaw-jaw than to war-war. Both Islam and Christianity preach peace.

“A situation where going to serve God becomes a walk into bloodbath does not help our spiritual lives. No family prays to lose four, five members to bombs in a war that seems to set one religion against the other.”

Seeking relevance through the wrong route....

He should help more in Abia....that is if he is still relevant in the politics of that state though.

He was the best Governor in Nigeria in his first term.

Mind you second term can be anything different which you and me is yet to understand.

You're right. The guy is really desperate and he's seeking relevance through any means possible.

People are easily forgotten in Nigeria. Even though Orji uzor kalu was arguably the most popular governor during his term as governor, he has been somewhat irrelevant. So, his trying to relaunch himself into prominence.

Orji is not as intelligent as the statement. I think he's the richest Southeasterner or the 4th richest in Nigeria though.

He is a shameless tout.An offer nobles like buhari cannot accept even with a thousand metres pole inbetween is an opportunity of a life time for an osu like kalu.

If animals like him who are the bane of corruption and nigerian syndromes are locked for their criminalities,insurgencies will fade out in nigeria.

Don't be deceived by thinking that sounding verbose, as Nigerians are prone to, is intelligence. If you were as intelligent as he is why weren't you a bank chairman in your early twenties, a feat he achieved.

And what makes him think Boko haram is going to accept his willingness to dialogue on behalf of buhari. I know he's trying to launch himself back into the political arena. But he had better convert to islam first. Boko haram might be heartless but they're not stupid.

I think we have got a problem with the youth in this country.Some of us cannot afford 3 square meal a day and yet we hide under the platform provided by nairaland to run down established millionaires.Kalu has always been a successful business man before he ventured into political arena.He is trying to help.The people that should be seeking relevance are the poor people on this platform who are just existing but not living.Some are still under their parents. From their post you will know

Funny enuf. All d governors of Abia are reknowned noise-makers diverting d media from d real truth wt their noises. Best Gov ever! Best security conscious Gov awards, yet nothing to show for their works. Abia is a pitiable state politically, developmentally and in administration, i wonder how a PAST or INCUMBENT GOV from dat state cud possibly come out 4 an affair of this immense. Ibos and capitalizations, i hail!

He definitely would be more credible than Buhari, but I think he would not be allowed. Dis is politics, and no one would want to give Dr Kalu any political victory even Boko Haram themselves.
