What is most annoying, disappointing, incomprehensible and incredible to believe is the condemnation of the arrest of Kalu for embezzlement by the Igbo Youth Congress (IYC). In its press release, the IYC expressed its surprise about the arrest and classified it as an “affront” on the Igbo community. At least one could understand the Americans hidden motive in running to the defen
se of Kalu, a C.I.A. agent, however, in the case of IYC, their motive is a total mystery.
It is a well known fact that many former governors including Orji Kalu were accused of embezzlement during the evil regime of Obasanjo not by the EFCC but even by their respective State house of representatives and electorates. The EFCC had said many times over and over that it was just waiting for the end of their regimes when their immunity will no more be valid in order to arrest and prosecute them for embezzlement of public funds. Orji Kalu’s name and state were among the names often mentioned by the EFCC. So, I can’t understand what is “surprising” to IYC about the arrest of Kalu. In addition, is one to interpret the IYC statement or position on Kalu to mean that the federal government should close its eyes and allow Kalu to walk away with his loots simply because he is their kinsmen?
Can somebody please be kind enough and explain to me how the arrest of a thief who has stolen Ndigbo money tantamount to an affront on the Igbo community? Why can’t the IYC exercise some patience and allow Kalu to clear himself if he is indeed innocent? Does the IYC understand the implication of its irresponsible statement and position on Kalu? Is IYC aiding and abetting corruption in the South east and
Certainly, with this kind of baseless, illogical and unreasonable statement by the IYC , it has discredited itself as a reliable and relevant mouth piece for Ndigbo youths to be reckoned with or taken seriously. I was just wondering that going by the visionless alteration of the IYC, there is a very high probability that IYC was founded and being funded by no other person other than Orji Kalu himself solely for his own selfish political interest.
In my humble opinion, before irreversible damage is done by the IYC, Ndigbo political elites and leaders should call IYC to order immediately. In addition, progressive Ndigbo youths should not only disown or disassociate themselves from this congress but should as well declare their full support for the federal government resolve to eradicate corruption which unfortunately has been one of the major obstacles to development in
Kalu’s case is a litmus test for Yar’Adua and Ribadu. They should not succumb to
Finally, apart from the 107 financial crimes brought against Kalu, I strongly recommend that the SSS conducts a security check on Kalu. To be precise, the SSS should conduct a comprehensive interrogation and investigation of Kalu to determine the possibility of spying for the
