Former Gov Uzor Kalu Says Going To Jail Made Him A Better Person

Former Abia State Governor and Chief Whip of the Senate, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, has said going to prison has made him a better person.
He says the prison experience was an eye-opener and revealed many secrets to him.

Kalu spoke in Lagos during a Thanksgiving session at the Love World Incorporated, otherwise known as Christ Embassy, Ikeja where he revealed that his incarceration was prophesied by the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.

Kalu however stressed that his experience in prison helped him to discover many things he never thought could ‘possibly happen in our clime.’
He said: “I am happy that I went to prison. I went to prison and I am out. I am happy because, going to prison has made me a refined, better and more forward looking man.

“I went to prison and discovered many secrets that I never believed that could happen.”

He said as a Catholic, he never believed in prophesy but he was surprised that Pastor Oyakhilome’s prophecy came to pass.

“Pastor Chris told me that I will go to prison but I didn’t believe that can happen. I remember that I visited him; and after praying here in this church, I was about to go to the airport to catch my flight to Abuja. He told me that he has something to tell me, but that unfortunately it is bad news. ‘You will go to prison,’ the pastor said.

“I said it is impossible. Pastor Chris told me that nothing can change it; but added that God will bring me out and that he will keep praying for me,” the former governor narrated.

Kalu explained that he had known Oyakhilome for 28 years, adding that he had on several occasions disagreed with the cleric each time he made predictions concerning him but at the end of the day, the Pastor’s predictions would come to pass.

“When this prophecy came to pass, I didn’t want to give this testimony. I am a chore Catholic and I don’t believe anything prophecy. I didn’t want to give testimony; but because this one concerns me I decided to testify. I think from now, I will begin to agree with his predictions,” the Senate Chief Whip added.

Senator Kalu was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment in December 2019 on corruption charges but he was released from Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja in June 2020 after the Federal High Court in Lagos presided by Justice Muhammed Liman ordered his release, following a Supreme Court judgment nullifying his trial and conviction.

The Supreme Court had, in May, ruled that the trial and judgment delivered in 2019 was null and void and ordered for a fresh trial while Kalu was subsequently released from prison.

  6. He still hasn't learnt the real reason why he was sent to jail, ode, you were sent there as a punishment for you to learn that stealing is evil, but you're here learning prophesy..

    You need to be sent back there so you can learn well and get your priorities in order. Yours is still misplaced

  7. Long hiss mtchewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  8. i can relate. i was laid off a job because i involved in illegal activities. i did not steal , but i pretended to be a distributor and sold goods to customers at retail price and made profits. most of these profits were used for PR to push sales, nevertheless i was sacked. The experience thought me a big lesson as i no longer ever go against any company policy. if policy does not favour the sales job, i respect it and resign. i have become a better person.

  9. Praise the Lord, somebody πŸ™ŒπŸΌ. Now he can translate it into reality but returning all the stolen funds and also assisting Ikpeazu in some infrastructural projects.

  10. You mean after staying in the VIP section?!

  11. Please can all of the poli-thieves go to jail to become "better persons?" 🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀

  12. Onye oshi Abia state, so what should we do with story na, hope you have no intentions for 2023

  13. So his imprisonment is prediction, not for crimes committed against the country.
    It is not his fault as he has been able to beat the decadent system and escape with the loot. If he is a better person he should just return the loot and apologize.

  14. Lekwa ya lekwa ya
    Oye oshi oye oshi
    Oga emegi vum na anya
    Oga emegi vum Na anya
    Return back the monies you stole
    Onye oshi
