Oshiomhole vs Oyegun: Orji Kalu advises Buhari on what to do
A former governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Kalu, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the dispute between the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole and his predecessor, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.
Kalu made the plea on Friday while speaking with newsmen at the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2, Ikeja, Lagos State.
The Senator-elect for Abia North on the platform of APC also insisted that he was still in the race for the position of the Deputy Senate President in the Ninth Senate. He said, ”I am not only restating it but I am saying that it is the most godly thing to do because I am ready to do that job to help the Senate in law making and help the executive to bring stimulus that would heat the economy. I am interested in the economy heating up because if we get the economy right, the insecurity that we are facing now will go away. Also, we need to look at candidates that have capacity to do the work and I have that capacity. Capacity to help the president actualise his economic goals because we need to put the Nigerian economy on track. Kalu assured Nigerians that the Ninth Senate which would be inaugurated on June 11, would engage in robust lawmaking and would not be a rubber-stamp assembly. He also expressed confidence that Lawan would clinch the position of the senate president and that the lawmakers would work in harmony with the Executive to deliver the dividends of democracy to Nigerians.
