Orji’s Temperament Against Kalu

The bible account says that God said let there be light, and there was
light. But some people yet preferred to walk in darkness. The later is the
disposition of Governor T.A Orji of Abia State. Sometimes one thinks with
embarrassing intuition and asks what did his political mentor and
predecessor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu did against him that he cannot forgive and
forget and make peace with him, owing to the glaring fact that in Nigeria
today we need more peace than we need problem.

As it is very sad that Orji could bite the finger that fed him with the
golden spoon and at the same time cannot forgive himself, it is even worst
that he’s bent on a mission to bring the hard-earned reputation of Kalu
down to bite the dust by all means and be sold less than 25 pieces of
Silva. God forbid!

Only a man who knows his onus can boast of forgiving, but this is not Orji.
He is boasting and fighting Kalu everywhere and anyhow when there is hardly
functional electricity, roads, water and good governance in Abia State. The
students today are shouting “Holy Ghost Fire!” in Abia State, because of
their school fees he has recklessly hiked to the Olympian Height. These are
the kiths and kins that Kalu gave free education in all the schools in Abia
State, when he was governor. This posits a question to Orji: what is he
using the collective money of Abia people doing?

Most urgent needs in Abia State are not attended to; but we heard last time
that – like father like son – Orji’s beating about the bush compelled his
bigheaded son to also be beating about the bush, thereby allegedly
intimidating Abia residents with impunity; but inopportune for him, he fell
in the hands of some Army personnel, who taught him the lesson he will live
to remember all his life.

This Orji’s son was alleged to be uselessly painting the state red, whereas
there are no light, water and roads, for the people living outside the
government house, Umuahia, the state capital. On whose expense? The same
way people are murmuring that majority of the lands and buildings in the
state have been bought by the Orjis? Are they not saying that the present
government is squarely a government of Orji for the children and by his
wife? ‘Ekputu!’

Abia people have to find a solution. When will this kind of thing end? He
was bent on destroying every legacy that was left of Kalu, culminating to a
lot of problems that needed to be solved. Can they rise and tell him to
find solution to electricity, construction and maintenance of roads,
portable water that have to reach the villages? Though, the people have
risen. They have pelted him, yet he has not woken up from his premeditated
slumber to work, in order to prove a point that, yes, it is not only the
Orjis that need electricity, tarred roads and water in Abia State.
Everybody needs!

Because Orji has refused to attend to the pressing needs of the people and
stop the chasing of frivolities on Kalu, the consequences are death rate,
poverty and sicknesses which have increased in the people in that state.
Why not! When Orji has seen every Igbo who is not from Abia State as a
non-indigene? This is what we are talking about people who have chosen to
walk in darkness.

He is not thinking and working towards making sure that industries spring
up speedily in the state and see businesses booming, rather he is after
making sure that people’s shops are destroyed, christened illegal
structure, when even the roads, schools, hospitals, governance, etc. in
Abia State are illegal, because they are below standard or have no standard

There is no food for Abians at different quarters to eat except those that
are connected to his shoddy government. The Abia environment is not neat.
Very dirty! It is leaders like Orji that are causing the problems that
Nigeria is having. Imagine a governor owing workers an untold months of
salary, which didn’t happen during Kalu-led government. The once Orji has
paid were counted payment of salaries of workers. Provision of desks and
chairs to schools has become the most essential achievement of his
administration, if actually they are not newspaper achievement.

Orji should have a human sympathy for Abians and Abia State. He should
understand that he is not a robot; even robot has some sense of decorum. If
he refuses to turn a new leaf, we will not relent in enlightening him. The
question he should be asking himself henceforth is: When will Orji be tired
of stories and blowing of grammar and face the reality in Abia State?

  • Ejike Nwankwo, You wanted to discredit the writer because you are on the pay list of TA Orji. I read the syntax of this writer and could not find anything wrong with his English usage. I followed this article to other websites and found that publishers like it than you hate it. With time, what this writer have posited will manifest before your blind eyes. I like this writer and his grammar. open your eyes!!!

  • MY RESPONSE:

    I must confess that your write up is a total mess. The grammatical and spelling errors that appear in every paragraph shows that you were in such a haste to disparage the Governor of Abia state OR that you lack basic writing skills (and yet claim that you are a poet and media consultant?).

    I have observed that there is an orchestrated plan by those who do not see anything good about Abia state to feed the public with wrong information about the goings on in the state. We, the people of Abia state who live and work in the state will not fold our hands and watch that happen.

    My responses to each paragraph are as follows:

    PARA 1: The bible account says that God said let there be light, and there was light. But some people yet preferred to walk in darkness. The later is the disposition of Governor T.A Orji of Abia State. Sometimes one thinks with embarrassing intuition and asks what did his political mentor and predecessor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu did against him that he cannot forgive and forget and make peace with him, owing to the glaring fact that in Nigeria today we need more peace than we need problem.

    RESPONSE 1: The word of God also says: the light shines in darkness and the darkness comprehends it not – Jn 1:5 and “take heed therefore that the light in you is not darkness” – Luke 11:35. I wonder if you really know the real difference between light and darkness?. How can you describe Governor T.A. Orji as one who walks in darkness?. This is a man who has been used by God to liberate the state from the strangleholds of strong occultic practitioners. Mind you, till date it is on record that the former governor and his mother have not refuted most of the allegations made against them with regards to their involvement in occultic and demonic practices.

    I do not think the present governor has any problem with his predecessor as you have alleged but simply wants to be left alone to face the business of governance. He simply is setting the records straight.

    PARA 2: As it is very sad that Orji could bite the finger that fed him with the golden spoon and at the same time cannot forgive himself, it is even worst that he is bent on a mission to bring the hard-earned reputation of Kalu down to bite the dust by all means and be sold less than 25 pieces of Silva. God forbid!

    RESPONSE 2: You sound like one of those sycophants who walk the corridors of power seeking one favour or the other. Who fed who with a golden spoon? Our Gov possesses sterling qualities and capabilities so it is natural for him to be considered for the position. Leaders do have successors but when they want to become lords and principalities over the people, they must be resisted!

    PARA 3: Only a man who knows his onus can boast of forgiving, but this is not Orji. He is boasting and fighting Kalu everywhere and anyhow when there is hardly functional electricity, roads, water and good governance in Abia State. The students today are shouting “Holy Ghost Fire!” in Abia State, because of their school fees he has recklessly hiked to the Olympian Height. These are the kiths and kins that Kalu gave free education in all the schools in Abia State, when he was governor. This posits a question to Orji: what is he using the collective money of Abia people doing?

    RESPONSE 3: The governor only responds in order to set the records straight and to be left alone to carry out his obligations to the people of Abia state. Concerning the issues of electricity, roads, water and good governance it is obvious that you are only stating things you have heard from those who misinform you. The reality on ground is far different from what you have stated. Which students, in which university enjoyed free education under the former governor? Come to abia state and see what the meagre resources are been used for.

    PARA 4: Most urgent needs in Abia State are not attended to; but we heard last time that “like father like son“ Orji is beating about the bush compelled his bigheaded son to also be beating about the bush, thereby allegedly intimidating Abia residents with impunity; but inopportune for him, he fell in the hands of some Army personnel, who taught him the lesson he will live to remember all his life. This Orjiâ’s son was alleged to be uselessly painting the state red, whereas there are no light, water and roads, for the people living outside the government house, Umuahia, the state capital. On whose expense? The same way people are murmuring that majority of the lands and buildings in the state have been bought by the Orjis? Are they not saying that the present government is squarely a government of Orji for the children and by his wife? Ekputu!

    RESPONSE 4: I find it difficult to decipher what you are trying to say here because the use of words is terrible. These are all rumours which you have heard and are not the facts on the ground. It has been repeated several times over that no incident like this occurred in the state. Are you really serious? Everything you are presenting as facts are all rumours.

    PARA 5: Abia people have to find a solution. When will this kind of thing end? He was bent on destroying every legacy that was left of Kalu, culminating to a lot of problems that needed to be solved. Can they rise and tell him to find solution to electricity, construction and maintenance of roads, portable water that have to reach the villages? Though, the people have risen. They have pelted him, yet he has not woken up from his premeditated slumber to work, in order to prove a point that, yes, it is not only the Orjis that need electricity, tarred roads and water in Abia State. Everybody needs!

    Because Orji has refused to attend to the pressing needs of the people and stop the chasing of frivolities on Kalu, the consequences are death rate, poverty and sicknesses which have increased in the people in that state. Why not! When Orji has seen every Igbo who is not from Abia State as a non-indigene? This is what we are talking about people who have chosen to walk in darkness.

    RESPONSE 5: Oh, spare us. What legacy are you referring to? Please state them. Gov T.A. Orji is working assiduously to develop the state and will continue to do all that is required to make life better for the people of abia state. The incident you made reference to is clearly the work of those who are been used to disparage the governor. I believe you watched the Governor’s visit to Aba a few days ago to commission some projects and saw the rousing welcome given to him by thousands of residents of the city.

    PARA 6: He is not thinking and working towards making sure that industries spring up speedily in the state and see businesses booming, rather he is after making sure that people’s shops are destroyed, christened illegal structure, when even the roads, schools, hospitals, governance, etc. in Abia State are illegal, because they are below standard or have no standard .

    There is no food for Abians at different quarters to eat except those that are connected to his shoddy government. The Abia environment is not neat. Very dirty! It is leaders like Orji that are causing the problems that Nigeria is having. Imagine a governor owing workers an untold months of salary, which didn’t happen during Kalu-led government. The once Orji has paid were counted payment of salaries of workers. Provision of desks and chairs to schools has become the most essential achievement of his administration, if actually they are not newspaper achievement.

    RESPONSE 6: Your language, my brother is so uncouth. Like i said earlier, it is obvious that you do not know the goings on in the state. Pay a visit to the state and see for yourself what is happening. We all know that “Rome was not built in a day” so we don’t expect dramatic changes overnight. After all the long years of decay orchestrated by the former administration, we think the governor is doing well with the resources available.

    PARA 7: Orji should have a human sympathy for Abians and Abia State. He should understand that he is not a robot; even robot has some sense of decorum. If he refuses to turn a new leaf, we will not relent in enlightening him. The question he should be asking himself henceforth is: When will Orji be tired of stories and blowing of grammar and face the reality in Abia State?

    RESPONSE 7: I am tired of reading this write up. The spelling and grammar are terrible. I would like to still state that the governor and govt of Abia state are working for the people of the state and we trust God that he would leave lasting legacies which we would all be proud of.

    Thank you.
