2019: Anti-Buhari elements are public looters, says Kalu
Former Abia State Governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, yesterday, said those fighting against President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid were mostly public treasury looters.Kalu, who was speaking in Katsina State during a two-day visit, said there were elements bent on frustrating Buhari’s re-election bid, but that their effort would not come to fruition.He said a prominent figure from the southern part of the country was among those spearheading the fight, but that Buhari’s noble cause would prevail at end of the day.
He said the president had “performed excellently in various sectors especially in addressing the problem of corruption” which had given the county a bad name for many years.The former governor was in the state as part of his sensitization for the actualization of another term for the president, an effort he was making through the National Movement for the Re-election of Buhari.
Kalu had during the visit met with governor Aminu Bello Masari, and the Emirs of Katsina and Daura, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir Usman and Alhaji Farouk Umar Farouk respectively, to promote the president’s re-election bid.
The former governor, who is publisher of the SUN newspaper, had earlier traversed the south eastern part of the country to meet with traditional rulers on the same issue. Kalu said Buhari deserved another term in office in view of the people-oriented programs carried out in the country, even as he condemned those unduely crticising him over his ambition.
“Buhari deserves re-election not criticism to enble him complete the good work he had began for the country.”He added that come 2019 general election; there was no amount of intimidation, blackmail or attacks that could stop the president from seeking another term in office.
