Former governor of Abia state Orji Uzor Kalu who recently decamped to APC has urged all Igbos to drop the idea of Biafra and remain with Nigeria. The statement has generated many reactions from Igbos, with many saying he is a disgrace. Below is what he said….
‘As an Igbo man who have seen it all, trained in business by the Hausa Fulani and started business in the South West. I sincerely believe it is better for the Igbos to sit where other Nigerians are sitting. I recall that on complaining of how the bad roads in the South East has been a great source of worry to me and our people, President Muhammadu Buhari personally promised me that all the contractors in the South East will return to sites before the end of November. Today, contractors are fully back to the many abandoned Federal roads in Eastern Nigeria. These are part of the reasons for joining the party. I joined the APC because President Buhari has fulfilled the promise he made to me and we are hopeful he will do more’
