A personal diaspora experience with Senator Orji Uzor Kalu (Senate Chief whip and the Senator representing Abia North in the National assembly.)
On the 15th of February 2022, I had the rare opportunity of meeting a Quintessential gentle man and a leader extraordinary in the person of His excellency Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.
The man who needs no introduction, as he has already carved a niche in the Nigerian space for himself, both as a seasoned business man and a politician.
The man who lives not for himself but for the dreams and realities of his people. The man who made ordinary men kings.
It was a meeting that reminds me of so many fond memories, as I remember with nostalgia his numerous works and achievements when he was a governor and now as the current Senator representing the good people of Abia North.
We in diaspora are following with keen interest, Senator orji uzor kalu’s giant strides in Abia North, in almost every areas of development, like his Distribution of Educational materials to various schools in Abia North and beyond, which cannot be over emphasized as Education is the bedrock of human development, not to mention the numerous roads he has constructed across Abia North, including boreholes and classroom blocks constructed and rehabilitated.
It is my wish and opinion to state that, as Nigeria is seeking to navigate her numerous challenges and steer back to the path of prosperity, she needs a dynamic,young, vibrant and qualified leader to navigate it. I believe OUK ticks all the boxes as he has a proven track record and the experience needed to steer the affairs of Nigeria.
Indeed Nigerians in Diaspora that I have talked to, are excited for better days.
Sir, thank you for the time and the beautiful insights.
