Buhari leading Nigeria to the Promised land – Orji Uzor Kalu
Former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, yesterday gave thumbs-up to the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, declaring that: “Buhari is leading Nigerians to the Promised Land.”
The former governor and businessman gave the remarks at the Cathedral of St. Andrews Peter, Aremo, Ibadan, Oyo State, where he paid his last respect to an illustrious son of Ibadan, Chief James Oladosu Babatunde, who was buried by his sons among them: Jide and Niyi. Kalu, who did not hide his interest to contest senatorial seat in 2019,saidd that Buhari had been trying his best to re position and repair the battered image of the country, but that many Nigerians don’t obey the rules and always flout due process.
He said: “We are heading to the Promise Land. Buhari is leading us to the promise land. There are two types of ingredients and components that make democratic process. They are the hardware and the software.
The hardware is what you see, like building of roads. “The software is obedience to rule of law, accessibility to people’s mind, obeying court order, making sure that courts of competent jurisdiction’s orders are obeyed, and making sure that everything done in the law is totally agreeable.
“Buhari is trying to put it across to the Nigerian people, by saying yes I might be slow, but we have to go through due process which is internationally acceptable. So, we are on course.
“Things have been very difficult, I agree, but you know my grandmother used to tell me that when a tailor gets a brand new cloth, he has to first cut it into pieces, then make it into a very fine dress. That is where we are today. Everybody must be trying, and we will get it back on course.”
On the issue of restructuring being agitated for by some ethnic nationalities in the country, particularly the Independent People Of Biafra (IPOB) being championed by Nnamani Kanu, Kalu said: “Restructuring is what comes gradually. Everybody is shouting and every time, they try to put one local language to us. Let them stop saying restructuring.
