Obama’ll happen in Nigeria – Kalu

31

President Barak Obama’s return to the White House may be seen as an American show, but former Abia State Governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, called it the Nigerian dream. Dream in the sense that there is, according to Kalu, so much of America in Nigeria.

Kalu said: “For the first time, nearly the entire Nigerian population watched the U.S. elections. President Obama and Mitt Romney debated, united against Sandy, went back to campaign and came out clean. Mr. President hailed his opponent, Romney congratulated him and life goes on. This is what Nigerians expect in 2015.”

The former governor drank from Obama’s ‘Change We Can’ slogan, toasting to American Nigerian historical similarities. “They fought a civil war from 1861-1865,ours lasted from 1967-1970. Andrew Johnson, a southern Senator, supported the union and was rewarded with the position of war governor of Tennessee in 1962. Ukpabi Asika from the East supported the federals and was appointed administrator of East Central state in 1967. We have a lot in common and change we can too,” Kalu stated.

He was not done. “There is so much between America’s 22nd president, Steven Grover Cleveland and Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. Both ruled, left office, and came back. Cleveland first came in 1885, and left in 1889, Obasanjo took his turn between 1976-1979. Now wait for this, “Kalu added. “Cleveland’s Second term was from1893-1897, just like Obasanjo’s second term as president ran between 2003 -2007.Then this one. Cleveland was born in 1837, Obasanjo came exactly 100 years later in 1937.” Continuing, Kalu said: “Cleveland assumed office as a bachelor until he married Frances Folsom in 1886. Sounds like General Yakubu Gowon, bachelor when he became Head of State in 1966.

He would later marry Victoria Zakari. Kalu is right. The Americans say theirs is God’s own country. In Nigeria, there is God’s own state, Abia, which incidentally is Kalu’s home state. While Nigerians dream, Kalu hopes that in the 2015 presidential elections, a compatriot of Igbo extraction would get a call on Obama’s hotline, and shout hello Mr. President, change we can.

    • Jeff, is it from your mother or father? I mean the mental case you talked about. Sorry any way, this platform is not meant for blind and pessimistic like you. If you are a student of history, you will draw a line from what Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu is saying. You will not die but live to witness this, that an Igboman would be inaugurated as President of Nigeria and until that day, Nigeria will remain in this wilderness of soul searching.

  1. Nigerians mentality is vry low to compare with Americans, biafra is the solution for generations to come. since Nigerians don’t want us let’s go our
    separate way.

  2. GEJ, I have always thought of how great and wonderful it will be if only you will understand the adminiration you will attract standing on the side of the people of God, side of truth, side of dencency and justice, rather than those blood suking idiots, Mr President if your military is against your possition Nigeria youths are prepared at any level to defend you, we are prepared to war with any foreign invaders, Nigeria belongs to Nigerians not Saudi, DIRTY IBB, BUHARI, ATIKU, THE EMIRS etc, you must stand with your people, we love you and nothing will happen to you God is with you, only if you defend his people, YOU DONT BEAT A CHILD AND TURN AROUND TO FORCE THE CHILD TO BEG YOU FOR FORGIVENESS, what a nonsense, what does the northerners think they are, mini gods to the north no south, we are ready for them, they can align with Niger, Mali, Sudan, or even Saudi or who ever this time, it will be different, 1967 was between Ojukwu and Nigeria not the entire SW/SS/SE let us see, we calpable and ready. Nigeria must end at the expiration of your tenure if the northerners refuse to allow you complete your 8years in office. They should go its not by force to stick together as a useless good for nothing clueless, visionless, missionless country, with nothing good to show for it, Mexico president stood up to fight drug barrons in his country, Jerry Rawlings of Ghana Faught against injustice in Ghana, and some one must sacrifice and redirect the leadership style and cleans the injustice against the masses of Nigeria, if God has brought in to do it for the youths no power should be able to intimidate you, it has happened in mighty Libya, Egypt, etc its happening in Syria, it will definitly happen in Nigeria, whether you like it or not Nigerians are tired of this wickedness against us, some group of fools, looted our money, we did not revolt, they have killed our people, our loved ones for no reason, we kept quiet and this dirty infidel think they can lord them selves and dictate for us Christains, It will never happen, GEJ you must stand up to say no, you are the president not BH, unless you want us the Christians to understand or believe otherwise, note this ” IF A CHILD IS ALWAYS MOLESTED BEFORE HIS PARENTS, AND HIS PARENTS ARE UNABLE TO DEFEND HIM, HE MUST SEEK A MEANS TO DEFEND HIM SELF AND HIS PARENTS, he will definitely know the implication but will have no option or remain slave forever, we will never subject or mortgage our future and the future of our unborn children in hands of, vsionless, clueless and myopic idiots, in the name of one Nigeria it will never happen. Christains must rise and defend them selves.

  3. @spanish guy.Shut up.who the hell told you that Nigerians don’t want Biafra to go? Biafra was defeated and they surrendered to the other Nigerians sovereignty- PERIOD.The next available canoe is waiting your exit from Nigeria if you wish to.I have never heard nor read where any of the other tribes in Nigeria beg Biafra to stay.GOODLUCK

  4. well nigerias re full,how can you say Nigeria are not begin biafra not go,why are them arrest massob ,why you know that massob is not voletry movement,brother and fellow Nigerians,nigeria is divide stop fulling others okay,not only that,nigeria will pay biafra country all the money pounds the lost, mrs Clinton come to Nigeria on bi human rights,what that mean to?second biafra take Nigeria government to cut what that one mean,so pls brother go where you belong ok,i from biafra,i love my country biafrans.we can fight,the have pay the pries fore us,what nigeria is manufacturing,i can manufacturing bomb,gun,in any form,i am real biafra God people only,no aslamic or Muslim no.i have know much to say,but biafra base in asia is rady,if nigeria think the need war again,the will see what the call anger of God honestly,Hiroshima of japanis will be batter than what biafra will do again.thanks all.biafra base asia.

  5. We cannot continue to shout One Nigeria when there is maginilization in the land.At least it is the turn of a person fron South-East Zone to rule in 2015 if they refuse to allow Goodlock Jonation is constitutional second term.

  6. MEANINGLESS WRITE-UP AND DIRECTIONLESS CONTRIBUTIONS, OBAMA IS WORKING TO UPHOLD THE DREAM OF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , WHAT IS OUR OWN DREAM ? ETHNICITY.

  7. biafra is our hope, if ur not beging us not to go then release 500 member of biafran zionist movement and pull out ur police and army from biafra. nigerian fools

  8. abegi, who told u most nigerians watched d process of us elektn how could dey wen dere’s no lite? i tell u dere’s no sight of lite in my entire neighborhood safe 4 few individuals who r able 2 a4d an I pass my neibor

  9. Udam Ochiaghandigbo on

    Who wrote this for you “Dr.” Orji U. Kalu? If Nigeria is to emulate America as you wish, “Dr.” Kalu, you will be chilling out in JAIL by now.

  10. I actually don’t see an lgbo man becoming the president of this already mutilated country come 2015, l also doubt the possibility of any hausa/fulani origin emergin as the president. If the igbo must be, then they need to put their head 2gether and repair their home first but l don’t see OUK as a good material 4 that exalted office.

  11. Hmmm!! There is something i noticed in this forum, tribalism, ethnicity, religious affiliation and over ambition. Ibo will rule this country but not with the person of Kalu, he ruled in Abia state for 8 yrs but nothing to show, Aba is a shadow of itself now, pools of water all over the roads and streets. Na de person wey e wan rule be dat? Obama and Kalu came from deferent social cultural back ground, one believe in corruption while other do not, in term of political ideology changes can stand tall and big. Government of the people by the people and for the people, see Rochas in Imo state.

  12. NIAJAMAN, YOU SEE HOW FAKISH YOUR NAME IS, OUK WILL NOT GO AWAY BECAUSE IF HE GOES AWAY THE IGBOS DREAM HAS GONE AWAY, YOUR PRAYERS FOR OUK TO GO AWAY WILL NOT BE ANSWERED. NO MATTER WHAT ANYBODY THINKS ABOUT HIM, HE IS ONE OF THE FEW PEOPLE WE CAN TRUST FOR THIS PROJECT, IT IS EITHER AN IGBO MAN IN ASO ROCK IN 2015 OR WE RETURN TO BIAFRA IN PEACE OR PIECES. OUR SACRIFICES FOR THIS ENTERPISE CALL NIGERIA IS ENOUGH, THE CRIES OF OUR FALLEN HEROS AND BABIES HAS FILLED GOD`S BOTTOLE SO IT IS 2015 OR NEVER NIGERIAN AGAIN BUT BIAFRA.

  13. BECOME BITTER KOLA EXPORTER IN SMALL SCALE ( 50KG/500KG TRAIL ORDER)

    If you know the exact place to source for this products you have made it.

    HINTS :

    …Do you know that one Bitter kola nut is sold for one dollar in Europe as at March 2012.

    …Do you know that exporting Bitter Kola does not require any Machine for processing as it can also be exported raw.

    Imagine you bought for N500 here in Nigeria and sell for $19 per kg, that means you will be making more than you ever think.

  14. I’m in affirmative that nigeria is due for separation. After the civil war, the easterner’s has been marginalised. Thou, the southerners has been too, but has been compensated by letting their son to pioneer the affairs of the state. From all indication, they re seeking for re-election which I think will generate a conflict from the northerners in particular. Therefore, there’s need for snc.

  15. Kalu placed poison in the porridge (story) by saying 2015 compatriot who will receive call from Obama will be from Ibo extraction. It is this regionalism and tribalism that is providing the fuel for the high level of corruption in the country. Obama was elected because of his intellectual capacity and not because he is from a marginalized black race. Until our political system allow for the full actualization of our potentials and dreams individually, Nigeria will remain a giant only in our own estimation. Americans are interested in worth of the individual so Nigeria must copy US by opening the current unofficial restriction of access to political so that competent but unconnected Nigerians can actualize their dream. God help Nigeria.

  16. Kalu my own person U are there. I mean Dr. Oji Uzo kalu Miri nyiri eyi ww not theother oji oooo. U will live 4 ur word of wisdom

  17. kelechi clement on

    There are dreams that can never come through. One of such is for Orji Uzor Kalu to be the president of Nigeria. Whoever is tracing this history for him can go on as no knowledge is a waste but hardly will we from Abia State forget the 8yr disaster of mamacracy in the state nor forget in hurry the intentional mess up of Aba by the Orjis. However,it’s a shame that people with no knowledge of history not even of yesterday are simply exercising their freedom of expression by telling you they support you. I know of 2 persons who will never ever rule this country, Nigeria Orji Kalu is one no matter how hard he tries.
