Ex-Gov Kalu calls for Obasanjo’s arrest prosecution

Former PDP chieftain, who is now All Progressives Congress, APC, stalwart and former governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, who also is an ardent lover of Buahri's administration, has challenged President Buhari to arrest and prosecute former President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to prove his seriousness on his anti-corruption war in Nigeria.

Independent News also reports that Kalu said the arrest of OBJ will prove to Nigerians that Buhari is really fighting corruption.

Kulu made this declaration while speaking at the quarterly public lecture series of National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO) with the theme: Culture, Economy and good Governance: The Nigerian Experience held in Abuja. Our accounts in Abia state were transparent under my watch. I have been given a red carpet in these two countries. In fact, I am stronger to fight corruption than President Buhari because he is not fighting it well.

He said: "I call on every aspect of our society for people to invest more on our cultural relationship with others, culture can be a lot, when you go to Calabar to Badagry towards the Atlantic Ocean".

He condemned state governors for not being creators of wealth but instead rush to Abuja every month to share oil money without knowing what it takes to make money. If any court finds me to be corrupt, it should jail me.

"A corrupt judge and corrupt politician is worst than armed rubber".

"Nigerians should start electing presidents that have meaning and gut to take decisions".

"Without arresting Obasanjo, he has not started fighting corruption because Obasanjo took away our $16million electricity money".

He said the president should do this by arresting Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president, over alleged missing funds meant for power under his government. "So, unless he arrests Obasanjo, corruption is not being fought in Nigeria".

Kalu, a former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, had been accused by some Nigerians, of defecting to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) so that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will whittle down on his corruption case now in court.
