Abia: Stop Accusing Orji Kalu, Group Tells Abaribe

A pro-unity group, Aba Frontiers Forum (AFF) has cautioned the Minority leader of the Senate, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe against heating up the polity in Abia state.

Reacting to allegations made by Abaribe in his new book, “Made in Aba”, the group faulted Abaribe for making unsubstantiated claims and unguided utterances.

In a statement on Thursday, the group’s coordinator, Nkem Chike, asserted that Abaribe emerged deputy Governor out of Kalu’s patriotism and magnanimity.

He stressed that Kalu as a mortal was not perfect neither was Abaribe perfect during Kalu/Abaribe’s administration in Abia state.

Chike admonished the minority leader to show appreciation to the Kalu dynasty for giving him the opportunity to serve as Deputy Governor.

He also noted that derogatory utterances and unguided statements credited to Abaribe are unpatriotic, uncivilized, uncalled for, and capable of jeopardizing the relative peace in the political space in Abia state.

Chike, however, emphasized the need for Abians to close ranks for the benefit of the people.
