Orji Kalu opens up on ‘giving land to Fulanis’ in Abia community

Former Governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu, on Wednesday said a quote attributed to him by a blog about him gifting land to some Fulani people, “should be discarded” as he never made such statement.

In a press release by his media team, obtained by POLITICS NIGERIA, Kalu asked the Publisher of the said statement to apologise within three days, or face legal action.

“The attention of the media team of former Governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has been brought to a malicious and false quote credited to Kalu and reported in an online media platform- Native Reporters,” the statement from the Senator’s camp reads.

“The false statement reads, “the fulani people I gave land at Lokpanta are innocent. They are not the ones doing kidnapping there. They have brought massive development to that area”.

“We categorically state that Kalu did not make the statement and as such, the quote should be discarded.

“We also use this medium to request the publisher of the said statement to apologize to the former Governor within three days or face legal action.”
