“You Are Cowards”, Orji Kalu blasts Abia PDP stalwarts
FORMER governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Kalu, on Sunday blasted some
members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Abia State led by
Governor Theodore Orji who, at the weekend, marched to the party's
national headquarters in Abuja to plead with the new chairman, Alhaji
Adamu Mu'azu, not to allow the imminent formalization of his readmission
into the party.
In a statement released yesterday (Sunday) by Kalu's media advisor, Mr.
Ebere Wabara, the former governor declared that the so-called 'stalwarts'
“were cowards and renegades bent on pulling the hands of the clock back
out of sheer ignorance and pecuniary enslavement.”
His words: “General Ike Nwachukwu (retd), who was directed by his
governor-benefactor to speak on the team's behalf, is a spent force with
no mind of his anymore due to senility. He is politically irrelevant and
could understandably be cowed and used by any mischief-maker for
“As for the moronic governor who was the cheer leader and the state's
docile members of the National Assembly that sheepishly accompanied him,
they are mere rascals and anti-democracy elements who do not mean well for
the party and our state they purport to represent. It is unfortunate that
they do not understand the new thrust of politics in Nigeria and the PDP
ethos of all-inclusive participatory regime.
“These idle folk from Abia State who are obviously afflicted by dementia
and pettiness need our party's assistance to rescue them from political
cesspit. As for me, these so-called 'stalwarts' are like bulls in the PDP
china shop. They need to be quarantined away from the party's chair,” the
former governor said.
Kalu enjoined the new PDP chairman “to disregard such retrogressive,
vicious and mischievous wild-cat interruptions that border on duplicitous
motives and crass clownishness,” he pointed out, wondering why just “one
man would be giving a bunch of trembling ignoramuses sleepless nights. I
sympathize with the minority clan of anarchists and urge Mu'azu to ignore
them in the interest of our party,” he said.
