Obasanjo Challenged Me For Declaring June 12 Public Holiday - Kalu by zakim(m): 1:06am On Jun 12, 2018
Former Abia State Governor, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu said on Monday that President Muhammadu Buhari has addressed the injustices associated with the annulment of June 12, 1993 Presidential Election, with the posthumous honour being conferred on Chief MKO Abiola as the winner of the freest and fairest election in the country.

Kalu, who spoke with Reporters at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) on his arrival from the United State, also declared that he was the first governor in the country that declared June 12 Public Holiday but he was challenged for doing so by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

According to him, the recognition of June 12 has proved wrong those doubting the commitment of Buhari to democracy.

He said the President has put Abiola in the map of the world. This, he stressed, was what past Presidents failed to do.

Kalu said the decision of Buhari to decorate late Abiola with the highest honours in the land shows that he is a democrat that the people can trust.

He however urged Buhari to go a step further by honouring the Chairman of the then National Electoral Commission (NEC), Prof. Humphrey Nwosu, who superintended over the elections.

Kalu also wants Buhari to address injustices people of the South East experienced during the Biafran Civil War by declaring the region a special area.

Kalu said Buhari should be commended for giving financial autonomy to the state judiciary and houses of assembly.

He said the new bill signed by the president, which gives autonomy to the judiciary and legislature should be extended to the federal arm of government.

He said, "I was the first governor that declared June 12 public holiday and Obasanjo wrote me a letter to challenge it.

"Now that Buhari is working, he should also remember Humphrey Nwosu, the man that conducted the freest and fairest election in Nigeria. He should also be honoured.

"Buhari should go a step further and declare the south east a social area because people in the region were given ill treatment. They lost mines and property. He has already made a good step by paying the Biafran police their entitlements."

Where is the archival evidence of this his act? Surely there must be some evidence in the public domain... A newspaper, a memo...

This dude has been talking all sorts of stories recently...

Must you hate everything good that comes from the SE? Kalu is a thorough breed igbo man, he holds the interest of the SE very dearly without being tribalistic. Kalu, Okorocha, Umahi and the current minister of science and technology are the best and potential presidential materials at the moment being groomed for 2023. No one should tarnish their image.
