Former Gov Kalu Explains Why Obasanjo Has No Moral Right To Criticize Buhari

Former Abia State Governor, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, yesterday carpeted former President Olusegun Obasanjo over his letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, advising him not to seek a second term of office. 

Kalu disclosed that he would personally reply Obasanjo’s letter with a view to bringing to the public the misdeed of the former President, especially the $16 billion power project and other high profile corruption he alleged the ex- President perpetrated. 

Kalu further said that Obasanjo had no moral right to criticise Buhari, detailing the alleged atrocities of the former President and advised him not to comment on national issues, at least for now.

Fielding questions from reporters at the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2 (MMA2), yesterday, Kalu called on Buhari to speak up on the challenges of insecurity affecting the country, especially as it affected the attack of some section of the country by Fulani herdsmen.

He said it was time Buhari spoke on the security issues in the country because it was threatening the fabric of socio-economic cohesion of Nigeria. He said the Buhari’s government may be slow in taking critical decisions, but has done well in tackling corruption, noting that there was a high level of graft in 16 years that the Peoples Democratic Party ruled Nigeria. He disclosed that the PDP plundered the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) maintaining that the APC needed to open the books to show the level of rot, it inherited from the PDP. Kalu said Buhari has recorded some achievements in his two and half year tenure, which necessitated his seeking re-election, listing the commencement of work on the Second Niger Bridge and other interventions in the economy.

“When Obasanjo was there, he also ran with South East, South West and South South people and all the northerners were driven away. When you have power, you try to address the issues that make things happen. When Goodluck Jonathan was there, he operated with South East, South West and South-South people. After all, this man did not build Abeokuta-Lagos expressway. The state of the road is in a mess. I cannot be a President and not build a road that leads to my house.

That is indiscipline. So, the man should first wash himself out of his problems before looking at other people’s problems. “For me, the letter is irrelevant at this time of our life. Nigerians should not celebrate mediocrity. As far as I am concerned, people who did not do well when they had the chance should not be pointing accusing finger at others.

One man cannot hold a country to ransom; one man cannot be the only one that is right”. On the letter, Kalu said: “I am not going to talk about former President Obasanjo’s letter because I am going to make some consultations with the United States, Germany, China and the United Kingdom. Then, I will come back and speak on that letter. “I think Obasanjo’s letter is not to the best interest of Nigeria. I don’t want to reply him because I have given you examples time without number about this man.

There are three express roads Obasanjo refused to build when he was the President of Nigeria. Port Harcourt- Okigwe- Umuahia-Enugu Expressway. It is being built now by the Buhari administration. “Another one is the Enugu- Awka-Onitsha expressway. It is being built now by the Buhari administration. Obasanjo did not build them.

Then there is the Onitsha-Owerri and Aba expressway. The Buhari administration is building them now. “Obasanjo is not a worthy person to write that letter. Under the Obasanjo administration, $16 billion was spent on power plant, but that money was wasted. Where we are now at the privately owned domestic airport, you can hear the sound of generator. The electricity in the facility is being powered by generator. Where is the $16 billion spent on electricity? “It is just that governments are not serious.

If the different tiers of government are serious, they would address where the $16 billion meant for provision of power has gone. “Before June this year, I will write my own letter to President Buhari and that letter will be explosive. Nigerians will see my letter to Buhari and that will be explosive.”
