Orji Kalu is one of the major political problem of the Igbos — Ohanaeze



Spokesman of apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chuks Ibegbu, has lambasted former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, for blaming Igbo for their political woes in the present dispensation.

Ibegbu wondered why Orji Kalu and his types believe or want to force Ndigbo to toe their line of thought and why Ndigbo must be slavish before they get what rightfully belongs to them.

Ibegbu noted that “the problem of Ndigbo is people like Kalu, who ride on Igbo platform to be relevant in the country and later castigate their own people.”

He wondered “why some misled and sycophantic Igbo politicians, in a bid to massage the ego of their masters, would reel out phlegm against their own people just for mere porridge.”

According to Ohanaeze Ndigbo, “no Northern, Western or Niger Delta politician worth his salt will openly castigate their own people the way our slavish political elites do. Yet even their masters in the North still do not take them seriously, knowing that if they could betray and malign their own people, they will also do so to them at any time.

“Even then, those of them who falsely claim that the North is more politically sagacious than the rest of the country may wish to tell Nigerians the benefit of the political sagacity of the North when it is ravaged by poverty, constant bloodshed and woes.

“Where then lies this so-called sagacity? What use is it to the North when Boko Haram, bandits and almajiris are everywhere? The sagacity they claim serves only the interest of the ruling class and not the talakawas and dredge of the North. “Orji Kalu, Rotimi Amaechi and now, Rochas Okorocha worship their masters up North like small gods and want us all to join their iberiberism.”
