The former Governor of Abia State has come for former President Olusegun Obasanjo for his attacks on President Buhari.
Orji Uzor Kalu, former Governor of Abia State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has taken a swipe at the former President Olusegun Obasanjo, over the latter’s continued attack on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
He claimed that the former President brought corruption in the country, which then impeded the economic growth of Nigeria.
Kalu, who made this known in his speech during the APC presidential rally held in Aba, Abia State, on Tuesday, also berated Obasanjo for trying to truncate the nation’s democracy with his third term agenda.
According to him, “I saw a man, called Olusegun Obasanjo attacking Mr. President. Obasanjo was a President who brought corruption in Nigeria.
“Obasanjo is a man, who told everybody that he never wanted third term, but, he wanted third term. My problem with him was his third term agenda, my problem with him was that he (Obasanjo) called me and former Speaker, Ghali Umar N’Abba that we should change the electoral bill.
“I signalled N’Abba in his room and I said, N’Abba, we cannot do this. Obasanjo turned himself to be a dictator. How can you compare Obasanjo and Buhari together. Is there any comparison? No. Mr. President had no comparison.
“Buhari want the judiciary to be truly independent. The judges in Abia have told me that they are in the process of receiving their salaries directly from the federal government.
“You have seen our roads, since I left as Abia governor, look at our roads, we have never had any new road. When they go to Abuja, they will tell Mr. President all kinds of lies, that Abia is not APC.
“February 16 presidential election is around the corner. The popularity of the party (APC) will be tested in this soil (Abia). Abians are ready. We are going to give him 70 per cent votes from this Abia State, to the glory of God”.
Kalu, however, canvassed total support for the APC gubernatorial candidate in Abia, Uchechukwu Ogah, in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
He said, “Uche Ogah had been tried and tested. He is coming from the private sector the way I came. I have confidence that he will deliver dividends of democracy to the Abia people if elected as governor”.

We have records to show how Buhari, APC rigged presidential election – Buba Galadima
Buba Galadima, Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, has revealed how the incumbent government allegedly rigged last month’s presidential election to retain its grip on power.
Galadima, an estranged ally of incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government of using the military to intimidate voters and inflate election results in its favour.
He spoke on Wednesday while appearing as a guest on Channels TV’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily.
Galadima said the events in Rivers State were evidence of the intimidation.
“It is not an accusation, the military are good candidates of the International Criminal Court. I saw it on television where they were going to houses killing people,” the Atiku spokesperson said.
He claimed that records are available to show that Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, won the presidential election.
“They said they won and want to go to court to inspect the election materials, that is clearly to show they rigged the election.
“I am speaking with authority and I can defend it in the court of law. Have you ever heard that a respondent went to court to check the results of an election because he was not sure his agents did the right thing?” he said.
