Kebbi Emirates honours Senate President, Ahmed Lawal, Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu – GOING DEEPER ON ORJI UZOR KALU.
- Engr. Abubakar Yusuf.
Personally, I have always admired the person of Senator Kalu, though I am not Igbo, I see him as a Leader that is definitely worthy of emulation and he has proved this in different occasions by his zeal to serve his people and the Nation which has brought him different recognitions all over Africa and the world at large.
Today as he is being honored by The Kebbi Emirate, I am reminded of his personality and wonder if the Igbo Nation realize that their son has received wide acceptance by different tribes in Nigeria.
Coming in a time the Nation is clamoring for a President from the Igbo extraction, this recognition should serve as a warm reminder to Igbos Worldwide on who the best option is.
Beyond the recognition, it will also be recalled that Senator Kalu is not only an astute political leader but also a business mogul whose economic experience is seen by how successful he has handled his business empire over the years.
Taking business out of the equation, the detribalized nature of Senator Kalu is also what we need in a time where the unity of Nigeria should be paramount to the next president.
While I congratulate his excellency for a well deserved honour, I am calling on Igbos all over the world to realize who they should put first in the presidential race, I know how much we love Senator Kalu in the North, a simple instance is seen by the honour bestowed on him today.
Igbos should be rest assured that the love he receives from we in the north would guarantee his victory.
Senator Orji Uzor Kalu is the man for the job and deserves all the support if he ever decides to answer the call by many to go for the office of the president of federal republic of NIGERIA come 2023.
Once again, I want to Congratulate Him for a well deserved Honour.
