Orji Kalu: Protest In Aba Should Be About Nonpayment Of Workers, Bad Roads by Metrix147: 7:51am On Apr 12
Former governor of Abia state, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has said those who staged a protest against him in Aba, the commercial nerve centre of the state should have instead protested that civil servants, teachers and pensioners have not been paid by the state government for months.

ABN TV reports that the Senate Chief Whip also demanded that they should have channelled their energy calling the attention of the state government to the bad state of the roads in Aba, Umuahia, Obingwa the local government area of the state governor and across the state.

Addressing the people the people of Arochukwu recently during a project tour in the area, he said democracy is about the development of the people but not political office holders.

While decrying the use of thuggery to manipulate elections, the Senator representing Abia North said lack of accountability in governance is traceable to the use of thugs to win election, adding that those who deployed thuggery to win do not come back to account for the people, saying democracy is about one man, one vote.

"In Aba North and South, go and watch, nothing will happen there in the next two years because we are in a democracy of thuggery. When you employed over 5,000 thugs to win a House of Representatives election, it make no sense.

"People who were demonstrating in Aba should be genuinely ashamed of themselves. They should demonstrate against bad governance. They should demonstrate against people like Enyinnaya Abaribe who have been in the Senate for 16 years without building a single road.

"I have been in the Senate for one year and you can see my report card. It is there in Arochukwu town, and across Abia North" he said.

Recall that protesters had flooded Aba following the conclusion of Aba North/South Federal Constituency bye-election Abia State recently in which PDP candidate, Chimaobi Ebisike was declared winner.

They were said to have staged the protest in jubilation that a younger brother of Sen. Kalu, Mascot Kalu who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC lost out.

Following intervention of political leaders from Abia North, they shielded plans to take the protest to the zone.

He's has been quiet since his protege was roundly trounced in the HoR elections at Aba.. He needed that. Kalu and his likes haven't gotten the memo yet.. Folks like them who worked with the likes of Buhari are politically irrelevant going forward..

Please this man should be in jail, they said the wrong judge sentenced him not that he was not guilty; how long will it take to bring the right one? There's something wrong with this country.

He was a governor for 8 years and he didn't fix the roads himself. Or is he trying to tell us he fixed them but he used substandard material and erosion has destroyed the roads again.

That is not true. Abians are not complaining and many of them are on Nairaland. Karlovych and NgwalandAbia are prime examples.

Maybe they are too foolish to complain since Tilumbu and Buhari are their problems.

So because he comes in public says thing in support of Biafra is what makes him good. You people are not OK.. Biafra will not be different from Nigeria because Ukochukwu na the same people.
