Orji Uzor Kalu Says ''Igbos Are Their Own Worst Enemies''

Former Abia state Governor and business tycoon, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, has lashed out at his tribe saying "Igbos are their own worst enemies."



He disclosed this in an exclusive interview published in the recent edition of The Interview.
He said Igbos who regularly blame the Federal Government for the backwardness in the South East should blame themselves instead for their woes.

Kalu said a number of the elites in the region are not only selfish, but also get their politics wrong.

"Let me tell you," he said in an emotion-laden voice, "there were more problems between (Asiwaju Bola) Tinubu and (Babatunde) Fashola, than there were between me and TA (Theodore Ahamefule 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's was referring to the fractured relationship between Tinubu and Fashola in the latter's second term as governor of Lagos State, and comparing it to his own internecine war with his successor, Theodore A. Orji, which led to the extinction of the Progressive Peoples Alliance, the party he founded.

Kalu illustrated his point with a conversation he claimed to have had with President Muhammadu Buhari, who wondered aloud why previous high profile Igbo appointees had done nothing for the region.

Kalu also spoke on the agitation for a state of Biafra and the travails of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu; his relationship with former President Ibrahim Babangida and former Governor Ikedim Ohakim; the recent statement of former Governor Peter Obi; and allegations that while he governed Abia for eight years, his mother ruled.

In this edition, Tolu Ogunlesi engages Boko Haram leader, Abu Shekau in an "exchange" of letters by email and Nigeria's matriarch of Agony Aunts, Bunmi Sofola, gives an insight into what happens to love in a recession.

In one his first major interviews, the Managing Director of Nigeria's mortgage refinance company, Prof. Charles Inyangete, also shares secrets on how you can make mortgage work for you.
"It's a sure medicine for this recession," Ishiekwene said in a statement released on Monday.

Orji Uzo Kalu, those who invested in the scam called Geofluid shares are crying and calling on God to hear them as it is known all the over 700 billion raised for the shares was diverted to slok airlines owned by you. GEOFLUID OIL AND GAS, pls list your shares in the NSE. My dad died waiting for it after investing 2M Naira. Theris God o!

We don't love ourselves at all.

peace maker said...

He should shut up. Attention seeker Oshi.What changes did he make in d live of people as a governor of Abia state? He only succeeded in looting d state to d ground.

zion baby said...

Let's leave Orji Uzo with his bad Administration.
But what he said its true.
I'm saying this out of experience, though we have good ones too.

Though there are some truth in what he said, but my problem with him is that he is also Part of the problems in igbo land. Mr how have you tried in uniting the igbos?

TA Orji, the worst governor ever in history. Orji Uzor did so much compared to him. T.A is a major problem Abians have. And i totally believe Orji Uzor, Igbo's are their own enemies. They never support their own... You all can yarn/bark all you want but this is just the plain truth.

Fan Emmanuel said...

Adadioramma you spoke my mind.
This man should first go and answer his calls with the EFCC before coming here to speak bile!
Onye ori azuruazu! Isn't it obvious that you are our own worst enemy? The worst eastern governor ever in history.
A complete disgrace to the Igbo land,a total failure that squandered Abia State resources. A selfish and unrepentant demon.

Hey Mr Kalu,we the entire umu Igbo has decided to disown you! Go and answer your call with the efcc and burry your God forsaken face in shame!!

Anonymous said...

Igbos say igbo men have no king, so as a result no igbo man will want another igbo man to rule over him. If nnamdi kanu had succeeded in making biafra an independent country, igbos would've just killed themselves fighting over who should lead, turning biafra into another south sudan.

Being book smart and good at business does not automatically make you capable of politics and leadership. Our former PHD holding president is proof of that.

Very very true.

Thank you for explaining this to the daft in here. Igbos are super good in trading and entertainment, in fact almost everything except politics. U don't know how to play the game. You carry emotions into the game. How can u rally round a party like its ticket to heaven. Split ur selves, pretend to be a loyal party member and get what u want. Its a game people. Politics is a game. Many of u are educated but lack wisdom. U need wisdom to play the game politics.

Anonymous said...

Fan Emmanuel you are a hypocrite.
He is a selfish man, so God should punish him, but when a video of a girl caught in the act of homosexuality was shown, you said he without a sin should cast the first stone.
Covering the kind of sin you commit abi.
I'm very sure you don't even know anything about politics, as in serious novice when it comes to political issues. Proper oh yes member!
When adults are talking, pls sit and listen, you might learn one or two.

Olaide Davies said...

Governor Ambode is really trying in Lagos and God will continue to direct and bless him.

diva said...

Ada and Emma both of you should calm down. Whether you like it or not, what he said is the absolute truth! I am igbo and we need to get our priorities right. We really need to work on building ourselves collectively.

Don't be mad money maker aka James aka peace maker because after all your begging here every week nobody gave you money and the food you were begging for. Igbo's call themselves Ibo here so stop shitting on yourself just go and read past posts where Igbo's have referred to themselves as Ibo. Pathetic shameless beggar. You call yourself a man but every day you are begging women on a blog to feed you and your family.

They never fail to disappoint. If they don't drag Yoruba into their sorry affairs they can never make a point or achieve anything in their sad and miserable lives.

It's the simple truth

lvahstherapy.blogspot.com said...

He is not exempted, yet he said a significant truth here. I just finished reading NZEOGWU by Olusegun Obasanjo and I cannot but agree fully with him. Moreover, I'm an Igbo to the core.

Hannah2 said...

Hmmm right now most of you agree he squandered his people's common wealth. But later again you would start shouting Efcc witch hunt. Lets stop been sentimental and call a spade a spade.

DonMayor said...

Adawhatever. I know you don't have manner but just try and listen to your brother. Ok ?
Senseless lot.

DonMayor said...

I said it, your AIDS is full blown, that's why you know that orji too is patient.
You better listen to your brother, he's an enlightened man that's why he can boldly tell you kids so you can learn.
Idiot small girl.

DonMayor said...

People like you that read for knowledge should endeavor to educate all these chicken brain kids.
