“We are very delighted and happy that finally, the JUDAS of Abia Orji Uzor Kalu has been brought to answer for his sins. He has boasted several times that Ribadu is his personal friend. I know he said this as to ridicule the anticipated action of Ribadu and his men towards hid theft. Kalu has impoverished Abia state and should be made to pay for it. He should not only be made to pay back his loot, but should be jailed to serve as a deterrent to people like his stooge THEODORE ORJI (The OKIJA GOVERNOR). May God help Abia state and its citizens…Amen.
Orji Kalu is a big disappointment to the youths and should be thoroughly brought to justice. A visit to Abia state will keep any living being dumb founded as to why Orji has been making all the noise. We in

THE CONTROVERSIAL MAN FROM ABIA.
No matter how one relates to him, one thing is certain, Orji Kalu, undoubtedly is a figure that can not be ignored in
Orji Kalu’s influence and role in
To millions of Ndigbo, he is an embodiment of what they have longed for in a leader of their generation and the 21st century. Ndigbo adure him for his entrepreneurship spirit, audacity and doggedness.
However, as a Nigerian and non-igbo, I am more concerned about other aspects of Orji Kalu’s personality. I am more concerned about how faithful is this man to
Fellow Nigerians, I am asking these questions sincerely without any prejudice or bias neither against the person of Orji Kalu nor the Ndigbo, a nation that I have so much admiration for. Infact, suffice to say that at the initial stage of the presidential election when different candidates were being proposed by Nigerians, I almost joined the bandwagon of those clamouring for Kalu’s candidacy not until I came back to my senses and carried out an objective analysis of this man both in terms of his performance as the governor of Abia for eight good(?) years and the way he went about his campaign for the Aso rock.
At a first glance, on the surface, Orji Kalu seems to have the portrait of an ideal Presidential candidate that Nigerians, and not only Ndigbo, have longed for; a very successful entrepreneur, two terms as a governor of abia state, erudity, youthfulness, doggedness, good health, international connections and a large following by his ethnic group. Unfortunately, after a thorough analysis of this man, I came to the sad conclusion that indeed “It’s not all that glitters that is gold.” As I have already written in one of my articles titled “How Ndigbo blew a very good chance of producing
However, I have more than enough reason to suspect or accuse Orji Kalu of being an agent of American secret service, the C.I.A. While I present my evidence before you, I want to appeal to you to assess my facts based on their merits, with an open mind and without any prejudice. For the sake of complete objectivity, while doing the analysis of the facts, let us try to forget at the moment our ethnic groups. Let us also seperate the man from his ethnic group and just analyse the raw evidence you are about to be acquainted with.
ITINERARY TRIPS TO WASHINGTON
As we may all recall, before and during the presidential campaign, Orji made uncountable number of visits to Washington, and held meetings not only with United States Congress men but with staff of the white house! My first suspicion was written jokingly in one of my articles titled ” A battle cry to reverse the poor state of the nation. (Part 3)(nigeriansinamerica.com). In that article, I seriously criticised Kalu for his itinerary trips to
mebody please tell me why a Nigerian nursing a presidential ambition was holding regular meetings with
Personally, I don’t know of any American or even African nursing a presidential ambitions in their respective countries who has travelled to
My suspiction became even stronger when Kalu eventually announced his presidential ambition. As could be recalled, the official declaration was made in
