IGBOS ARE THEIR OWN WORST ENEMIES – ORJI UZOR KALU
Former Abia state governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, has lamented that the Igbos are bad in politics, despite being good in commerce and in every other thing they do.
Speaking in the latest edition of The Interview, the former governor stated that elites of the South East region are not only selfish, but get their political calculations wrong.
He declared that if the former governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Fashola was an Igbo man, he would have openly challenged his predecessor who is a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu.
Kalu made the remark while reacting to the frosty relationship between him and the person who succeeded him as Abia governor, Senator Theodore Orji.
According to Kalu, “Igbos are their own worst enemies.
“Let me tell you, there were more problems between (Asiwaju Bola) Tinubu and (Babatunde) Fashola than there were between me and TA Orji, but it is the discipline of the Yorubas that kept them at bay.
“Igbos have no discipline in terms of politics. They are very good traders; they’re good in anything they do, but they don’t understand politics.”
Kalu is facing a 34 count charge bordering on money laundering as he was on Monday re-arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, at a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.
