Kalu slams Buhari’s critics on killings

Aidoghie Paulinus, Abuja

Former governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu said it was insane for anyone to link President Muhammadu Buhari with herdsmen killings in the country.

Kalu who spoke during a farewell dinner he held in honour of the outgoing Czech Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Pavel Mikes and wife, Senait, in his Abuja residence, yesterday, said Buhari is committed to ending the circle of killings.

“I don’t know why a president of Nigeria would be expected to aid people to kill his citizens. I mean, it is embarrassing to even hear that.

“I have explained this; I have discussed this with you (outgoing ambassador) many times, and I said it is not possible, there is no way any man directly elected by the people will abandon his duty and be doing the opposite. The issue of herdsmen has become a challenge to us. Since the Federal Government dismantled Boko Haram, it became a problem.”

Kalu expressed gratitude to Mikes in his efforts to ensure that all levels of the Nigerian government respected the rule of law.

But Kalu lamented that rather care how the country will make progress, everybody was fighting one another, a development he said was at variance with the process of true democracy.

“This is a new order. The old order should pass away – Oh, Saraki, Buhari, Dogara, all these dancing, we should be out of it. We should talk about the people, 190-200 million Nigerians that have no food, no good education, no good healthcare, ways to eradicate the Almajiris; these are commitments leaders should give.

“Leaders should stop talking about backbiting, killing and all the rest of them. Killing is also not a good thing. No president would want to see his people dying. I ask the governors to do more about those killings. I was a governor. Nobody can tell me what a governor can do. I was a governor, I am passionate about this country, and I am passionate about a process that can eradicate all these killings because it is not good to kill. And President Buhari has taken new steps. He was in Plateau the other day and every other place where killings have taken place and he is committed to making sure that these killings stop.

“Boko Haram has just changed their strategy. When I complained last year about people infiltrating the Nigerian system and making these spontaneous killings, you people never believed me. The press lashed out at me, and said what am I talking about. Today, I am happy that the DSS came with a report that there are foreigners in our land. I sawt hose foreigners last year. I spoke to few of them in Enugu road at a time and they were not Nigerians. I stopped people rearing cattle and I found that they can’t even speak Hausa. They didn’t hear Fulfulde, which is Fulani; they didn’t hear Hausa and that confirms what I said last year that people that are non-Nigerians have taken over our soil.”

Amb. Mikes thanked Kalu and his wife, Ifunaya, for the privilege and honour to be their guests. Mikes, who said his tour of duty ought to be three years, but ended up spending almost five, expressed gratitude to his country for extending his stay, even as he said Nigeria is a great and complex country.

“I would like to stress that we found very many good friends and I would thank as the best friends of ours here in Nigeria, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu and his charming wife. I discovered he is not only a very good friend, but also a passionate thinker, politician, passionate about the future of Nigeria, working hard to promote Nigeria in the world,” he said.

    Orji Kalu is fake from birth,no one has said that buhari sent people to go and kill Farmers but Nigerians elected Buhari to protect their lives and properties.If any President cannot do that but harvest killings every day such president should resign for incompetence not giving excuses.

    Buhari must know that Orji is looking for political rehabiliation and Ndigbo do not listen to Orji Kalu because we have seen through his wash wash over the years.

    Kalu is being economical with the truth because of bread and butter. Nigerians know that the killer herdsmen are Fulanis, and are only continuing in the spirit of Othman Dan Fodio’s jihad of 1804 – 1808 through which Hausa kingdoms were destroyed and Fulanis took over the lands and became masters.

    If Kalu says the fraudulent criminal tout parading himself as Buhari is the elected Buhari in 2015, let Kalu present him for public scientific examinations. As regard who’s behind the attacks and killings of this territory natives, the motives, is not a question of debate, the Sword will answer the question in this final conquest of the Liberation Revolutionary Warfare of the natives under the natives Disintegrated Republics which ends in Sokoto- the sit of the satan of this natives territory. God given Victory is the natives. Only the Sword decides. God Is With Us!!!

    Kalu thanked the said Czech ambassador for Czech’s arms donation to the enemy, with which the enemy attacked and killed this territory natives to Force this territory natives together under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria so as to go on Plundering this territory natives God given wealth- it is Futility. Kalu should make sure Czech will donate more arms to the enemy to Force this territory natives together under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria so as to go on Plundering this territory natives God given wealth- if they can. The way this territory natives fought in the 1939-1945 war in which Czech is Liberated, so must this territory natives of this generation fight for this natives territory Liberation under the natives Disintegrated Republics, and crush all complicit and collaborators of in this natives territory under the natives Disintegrated Republics- Biafra Republic of south east, Niger Delta Republic of south south, Oduduwa Republic of south west, North East Republic, North West Republic, North Central Republic.

    They have already sold us for demonic recolonization, those of the Igbos and Christians who want this regime to come again 2009.
    The: killing Rev Fathers and Worshipers of God of Jesus Christ is worrison yet kalu will like to praise a fellow man for a bread that was why the God Almighty destroyed Pherou and his best officials.
    Thinking that because you are a president or governor or a king on earth made you to do any how, doing anything any time against humanity no matter your religion and go free no.
    Your charms and tallisman is very little because you are not seeing tomorrow or future events.
    We fear God only AND WORSHIP HIM and no matter what power a man can possess he have nothing to do because the blood of the innocent people already shed in Nigeria has defiled the holy land…a lot of people has been murdered;killed unlawfully in this Buhari regime therefore let him step down for a true Nigerian who knows what is human right and how to respect it.
