10th National Assembly: Orji Kalu sends message to Senate presidency aspirants

The Chief Whip of the National Assembly, Orji Uzor Kalu, on Thursday pleaded with the senators-elect who are eyeing the Senate presidency seat, to “focus more on the difference they can make rather than exerting energy on blackmails”.

Kalu’s appeal was conveyed in a statement sent to POLITICS NIGERIA.

The former Anambra State governor lamented that “because of position, people have embarked on high level and low-level character assassination and defamation of Orji Uzor Kalu”.

His statement reads in full: “By June 13, the National Assembly would be electing a new leadership to spearhead the affairs of the10th Senate.

“As the race continues to gain the attention of all Nigerians, I implore my dear colleagues who have interest in the Presidency of the senate to focus more on the difference they can make rather than exerting energy on blackmails.

“To progress and succeed as a nation, we must shun hatred, lies and propaganda.

“People are telling lies against my person; using my name for gossip buying and selling. Because of position, people have embarked on high level and low level character assassination and defamation of Orji Uzor Kalu.

“We should always remember God’s authority in our lives. We should remember that the life we live is not for ourselves alone but for God and to then accommodate other people. We should remember that any wealth, power, or strength we have originated from God. Any gift or talent we have – the same is true (James 1:17; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11). Even our ability to give generously comes from God (Deuteronomy 8:18; 2 Corinthians 9:10-11). Everything we have, and everything else that exists, is all His. When we know and embrace this, we would be better people with better minds.”
