Kalu Hails Nigerians For Showing Concern Over Health Condition by handie(m): 6:55am On Nov 28, 2018
•Ex-governor to return for trial Nov. 30
Former Abia State Governor Orji Uzor Kalu has
hailed Nigerians who have shown concern about
his health condition as he recuperates from a
medical procedure in Germany.
He also reaffirmed his respect and faith in the
judiciary, declaring that members of the Bench
deserve respect and that their decision in court
“must be respected until set aside at a superior
Kalu said: “I have the highest respect for the
personnel and processes of our judicial system.
Indeed, I’m a faithful adherent of the dictum,
which states that ‘no height is high enough to
stand on to disrespect the judiciary and no depth
is deep enough to be used as an excuse for such
The ex-governor underwent a successful surgical
operation in Germany last month.
His absence in court, following the medical
treatment, had caused Justice Mohammad Idris
of the Federal High Court to revoke his bail.
In a thank you letter from Wiesbaden, Germany,
Kalu expressed thanks to President Muhammadu
Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former
heads of state and People’s Democratic Party
(PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar for
identifying with him over his health condition.
He also thanked All Progressives Congress (APC)
National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole and his
People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and All
Progressives Grand Alliance (APG) counterparts,
Uche Secondus and Victor Oye and others for
reaching out to him on his hospital bed.
Apparently reacting to the revocation of his bail
by Justice Idris over his absence in court as a
result of his medical treatment in Germany, Kalu
said: “All right-thinking citizens must condemn
reckless commentaries on social media or the
pages of newspapers that potentially threaten
these ideals. Any inappropriate commentary on
the decision of Justice Mohammed Idris to
revoke my bail is not acceptable to me and
should be discontinued, irrespective of the
positive dispositions of the propagators towards
“The highest demonstration of affection or
loyalty to me will best be measured by the
degree to which this admonition is heeded. Our
judges deserve unqualified respect and the
sanctity of their decisions must be respected
until toppled at a superior jurisdiction.”
Explaining his absence in court, he said before
he travelled for medical treatment, he notified
the relevant authorities, while expressing his
commitment towards the conclusion of his case.
Said he: “I ensured adequate notifications were
delivered and acknowledged by the relevant
organs before travelling with my wife for my
medical treatment in Europe. Unfortunately, the
court case involving my humble self and others,
which was adjourned sine die on the last date on
which the matter came up for hearing, was
subsequently listed for hearing on a new date,
which conflicted with the already scheduled
critical surgery appointment.”
He said he had, on three occasions, postponed
such “medical appointments in order to present
myself in court”.
“I had always placed this matter over and above
all other personal considerations because
defending my personal integrity and uprightness
supersedes all other personal interests,” Kalu
Saying that it was expedient he travelled for the
medical treatment, Kalu said: “However, my
deteriorating health condition and the emergency
status it assumed made it absolutely imperative
for the doctors to insist on carrying out the
necessary medical procedure without further
On his commitment to the court processes
relating to the fraud case instituted against him
and others by the Economic and Financial
Crimes Commission (EFCC), Kalu said of 64
court sittings he had attended 62, saying his
absence in the last two sittings was due to
critical ill health.
Kalu gave notice of his resolved to return to
Nigeria to comply with the court order revoking
his bail.
“I will, therefore, return to Nigeria on the 30th of
November, 2018 before returning to Germany on
10th December, 2018 and 22nd January 2019 for
further medical examination,” he said.
