Governor Theodore Orji, Where Has Orji Uzior Kalu Erred?

Written by Taiwo Lawrence Adeyemi

Your excellency, Governor Theodore Orji, executive governor of Abia State 'God's Own State', you made history as the only governor to sworn in outside your state of jurisdiction in taking oath of office on May 29th, 2007, it is a rare FEAT! Orji Uzor Kalu [OUK] defied all the intimidation's by the EFCC to nail you and get you arrested on the orders of the former president Olusegun Obasanjo and prevented you from being sworn in as the executive governor of Abia State.


It takes courage to achieve this feat! With the recent happenings and developments in Abia State, I couldn't but ask myself, where has Orji Uzor Kalu erred? Orji Uzor Kalu is rich [his once emerging Slok Airlines whose license was later revoked on the orders of ex president Olusegun Obasanjo and later relocated  to Gambia and was doing quite well and many investments of his that could not be waved aside]. The recent controversies over his Abia State University, Uturu degree withdrawal by your administration is rather a politicize thing and unnecessary, having rule the state for eight years. What does he needs the certificate for again?


Your excellency, your eight years will come to an end by the grace of God May 29th,. 2015 and whoever comes in as the new governor of Abia State in 2015 will definitely reciprocate whatever you made Orji Uzor Kalu passes through as an ex-governor. Having subjected Orji Uzor Kalu to; victimization, character assassination, image ridiculing and slandering of his name.  Orji Uzor Kalu transformation of Eyimba Football Club of Aba 'Peoples Elephant' to Africa's conquerors twice is no little feat and the magnificent Eyimba Township Stadium, Aba.


Your excellency, you talk about Abia State as the safest state in Nigeria no doubt about it, but some major townships roads in Umuahia and Aba remains in a pitiable state. You left governance and concentrate on fighting your benefactor, somebody that risks everything to make you what you are today! There is a Yoruba adage that says 'The rod that was used to chastise the ex-wife will also be used to chastise the new wife". Orji Uzor Kalu tweets as regards the certificate brouhaha to me is unnecessary, after all he is self made man.


Your excellency, Gov Theodore Orji remember, Orji Uzor Kalu worked for you, labored for you and sworn you in at the risks of his life outside Abia State and you decided to reward and pay him back in theses unimaginable ways! Where has Orji Uzor Kalu erred, your excellency? As you inch towards the ultimate in life, lessons are meant to be learn' in the highest level of administration. Is it only in Abia State that a sitting governor will attend university, what about ex-governor Ibrahim Idris of Kogi State that was attending University of Abuja when he was a sitting governor? It is only Abia State that an incumbent governor is subjecting his predecessor to these kind of humiliation.


Kindly fast forward life and think of POST 2015. All the noise about his transcripts from Uni Maid, somebody writing exams for him, the University Senate been under duress at the time, all these smears smokescreen. It is on record that the trio of Orji Uzor Kalu, Ahmed Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar use all the resources at their disposal to fight ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo to stand still as regards the ill-fated and the aborted third term agenda and the resultant effect is what you are enjoying now.


Your excellency, it is and will be imperative to let the world know, where Orji Uzor Kalu has erred? Allowed Orji Uzor Kalu to enjoy his private life and concentrate on governance, transforming and delivering electoral promises to the good people of Abia State 'God's Own State', when you see a mad bull in China's shop, you find a way of leading it out gently to avoid damaging the contents in the shop;- according to Prof Wole Soyinka.


Governor Theodore Orji, allow Orji Uzor Kalu FRESH BREATH!
