“Abaribe is an ingrate”, Abia Professional group attacks Abaribe over remarks against Senator Kalu
A group known as concerned Abia professionals has expressed dismay at the vituperation and utter distortion of facts in Senator Enyinnaya Abaribes recently released book titled made in Aba which was aimed at discrediting the esteemed reputation of one of Abia’s illustrious sons, a former governor of Abia and the chief whip of the senate, senator Dr orji uzor kalu.
In a communique issued by Dr Andrew chukwuma, the group described senator Abaribe as an ingrate, recalling how senator orji kalu picked senator Abaribe from obscurity and made him a deputy governor, the group in their statement was quoted as saying that Abaribe was languishing in Lagos and struggling to get ticket to contest for House of assembly In Abia, when he ran into orji uzor kalu who as of then was already made and was the front line candidate for governorship election In Abia, it was when Abaribe ran into orji kalu that Abaribes political fortune changed as orji kalu offered him on a platter of gold the deputy governorship slot without previously knowing who Abaribe was
The group further recalled the ignominious role and act of criminality that lead to the ouster of Enyinnaya Abaribe as the deputy governor, stating how Abaribe and his cohorts forged the revenue receipts of the state and fraudulently diverted the states purse to their personal purse.
Indeed senator Enyinnaya Abaribe owes all his political success to Senator orji uzor kalu and family, who brought him from obscurity and gave him a political future
The group who is not holding brief for senator orji uzor kalu or family stated that they are concerned because orji uzor is one the biggest lights from the south East Zone therefore they wouldn’t fold their hands and watch his reputation stained especially since they were privy to what lead to the fall of Enyinnaya Abaribe as deputy governor of Abia state
Finally the group enjoins Abians and indeed Nigerians to jettison the masked attempt to tarnish the image of senator orji uzor kalu whom they hold in high eateem especially when the false assertions vituperated by senator Enyinnaya Abaribe did not in any directly indict senator orji uzor kalu rather the Author was mainly chasing shadows
