Orji Uzor Kalu: The Face Of The New Order In 10th Senate
By Bello Osaretin
We stand rock solid behind Sen Orji Uzor Kalu declaration for Senate president of the 10th Senate, the declaration came at the most auspicious moment in the race for the coveted position of Senate leadership, a position of service to Nigerians and humanity.
Today, Orji Uzor Kalu stands out to be the political equator right now to balance the north,south,east and west dichotomy that will help reshaped the convoluted political inequality and accommodate the different ethnic nationalities to further straighten the federal character principles.
Senator Orji Uzor kalu leadership will bring about the needed reliefs to the political agitations of the south east geopolitical zone towards the highly touted government of national unity.
Therefore, we urge the leadership of APC as a political party to be progressive and nationalistic in their outlook, by zoning the position to the south east to reflect all inclusiveness in the next administration, as all variables and pointers favours the southeast region.
To this end, we admonished the political leadership of southeast zone not to be complacent in the pursuit of this project, but to find a common ground and rally support to consolidate on the progress already recorded by Orji Uzor kalu as a ranking senator in the 9th Senate, who indeed has a wide range of support base across Nigeria to harvest and galvanize the support of his colleagues in other regions to emerge the next Senate president.
There are no other Igbo senators in the southeast to my knowledge, who maybe having the pedigree of OUK that will be easily acceptable and command the respect of co-Senators for the coveted position in the 10th Senate, and stand a chance of emerging as the next Senate president in comparison with the compact experience of Orji Uzor Kalu, a man that has long built bridges across Nigeria with patriotic enthusiasm.
The Forum of Progressive Leaders believes strongly in the capacity and competence dexterity of Sen Orji Uzor kalu to work perfectly well with the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. It is on record that both men were once contemporaries as governors in 1999 till 2007,during which they bonded very well, irrespective of political affinity, these great pairs of personalities will drive the course of Nigeria through the path of greatness.
Who else, if not Orji Uzor Kalu.
Comrade Bello Osaretin,
A political alchemist,
DG, The Progressive Leaders.
