Kalu, Anyaoku and theWorld Bank

The cheery ex-Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has placed his
stand on the development for the job of the president of World Bank.

This was made public in most of the national newspapers of 2nd April, 2012.

While speaking through his spokesman, Emeka Obasi, Kalu said that for the
avoidance of doubt, Chief Emeka Anyaoku should be detailed to Europe to use
his years of mammoth knowledge in diplomacy and therefore grab hold of this
prospect for Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

Kalu feels the pain so much, which was why he’s calling for international
diplomacy, because of the shocking politics of the apex bank. Left for him,
it is Okonjo-Iweala or nothing. He’s seriously thinking about the going
politics, teaching with support and ideals, visions and dreams.

time in the government of Abia State because of selfishness, with
distending grammar and developing the state only on the pages of the

Conversely, Abians knew that a waster of time and development of Abia State
as is glaring today is a waster of everything. For how long will the
government on ground continue to frustrate and waste Abians, because of bad

Kalu should not stop until positive things outnumber negative things in
Nigeria. His body language on the position at the World Bank suggests that
those involved in it should never beat around the bush.

Hope President Goodluck Jonathan will by now warming Anyaoku up?
