A socio-cultural group in United States,  Pan Ndi-Igbo Foundation USA, Inc. (PNF USA)  has honoured Orji Uzor Kalu  with its “2013 Advocacy for Justice Award”  on August 30, 2013.


In the earlier statement the National Chairman and Secretary, Chief Geoffrey Nzeadibe and Mr. Felix Okereke stated, “Ndi-Igbo in the United States under the aegis of Pan Ndi-Igbo Foundation USA, Inc. (PNF USA) unequivocally and strongly have chosen Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, MON as the recipient of their coveted 2013 Advocacy for Justice Award.”


The statement further reads: “Ndi-Igbo in the Diaspora unequivocally support your bold and fearless effort to protect and advocate for human rights of Ndi-Igbo and Nigerians in general.” “We admired your position on the recent deportation of Ndi-Igbo by Gov. Babatunde Raji Fashola.”


PNF USA official statement concluded, “You were the only leader who stood with Ndi-Igbo to condemn the cruel and unconstitutional action of Gov. Babatunde Raji Fashola against your people, Ndi-Igbo. We commend you wholeheartedly; in our eyes, you stood tall and shoulders above others, who seem to shrink in the face of adversity for Ndi-Igbo."


On receiving the awrd in Dallas , USA, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu   made the below thank you speech:

"Please my brothers, I thank the PNF-USA sincerely and I will like to be associated with you people. I will like to see you people more and more because the way you fought and are fighting for Igbo cause is commendable.


Let me warn, the award is good but award is not the ultimate thing; the ultimate thing is our mind, our mindset, our commitment to our new generation, our commitment to what we are going to be doing. It is not about me.  It is about our community. Echoing the throng of ardent Igbo conservatives. We have been cheated and drown; if anybody will support the Northerners to be president, it is me but I’m telling them no this time. They should go and sit down for the president is for the southeast.


It is about our community,let God remove 30 per cent of our intelligence and give us love. He regretted that we lack love for one another. We don’t love ourselves that is what we should be looking for at this time. We need more than this award you are giving me now; the award is good but it is not the ultimate, the ultimate thing is love. It is through true love that you people gave me this award today and I want you to show the same love to your brothers and sisters so that we can collectively move our agenda together."
