FELLOW BETTER, the campaign organizational of Distinguished Senator Mao Ohuabunwa condenm in strong terms the reported Wednesday attack on innocent protesters, at Ihechiowa,in Arochukwu local government ,of Abia state by the embattled former governor of the state Chief Orji Uzor Kalu and his trigger happy security aides who fired several gun shots to the crowd.
We are however more pained by his desperate failed attempt to twist the story in his favour . The ex governor in his usual character turned around to blamed the protesters to have attacked him first during his aborted campaign in the area .
The organization like many other good people of the state had thought that chief Kalu should be more concerned with his ongoing trial over alleged N7. 7 billion fraud charges levelled against him by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).
Rather than embark on his failed political voyage , chief Orji should honourably throw in the towel and tender unreserved apologies to the people of the state for allegedly looting the state dry during his controversial eight years in,office . Chief Kalu who is the candidate of the APC, for Abia north , is standing trial over N7.7 billion fraud levelled against him,by EFCC.
Ordinarily it would amount to a waste of time to join issue with this drowning politician and his known antics , but we are however constrianed by the erroneous impression his statement intended to create in the mind of other innocent people .
It was reported that Kalu and his security team who were in the area for campaign opened fire on a group of people who were on ground to remind him of his neglect of the area during his tenure as governor of the state .
One the youth who was hit by the bullet is currently receiving treatment in one of the government hospital in the state. Unfortunately the ex governor has not deemed it fit to visit or commiserate with his victim.
The people of Abia north are not however deterred by chief Kalu and his continued harassment and intimidation of innocent citizens . The ex governor is rejected and remain unacceptable by the people and he knows this .
We therefore urged our teaming supporters to remain law abiding and turn out in their crowd to finally retire the ex governor .
