Corruption: Arrest Obasanjo now – Orji Uzor Kalu dares Buhari

Former governor of Abia state, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu has called on president Muhammadu Buhari to arrest ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo.

Kalu accused president Buhari of not waging a holistic war on corruption in the country daring him to arrest Obasanjo.

Kalu made this statement at the quarterly public lecture series of National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO) with the theme: Culture, Economy and good Governance: The Nigerian Experience held in Abuja also said his ongoing prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has political undertone.

He said that the president should prove his guts to fight corruption by arresting Obasanjo for misusing funds meant for power under his regime. He said;

“My prosecution is political. Our accounts in Abia state were transparent under my watch. The US knows, the UK knows. I have been given a red carpet in these two countries. I have been given a red carpet in China. In fact, I am stronger in fighting corruption than President Buhari because he is not fighting it well”.

I have recovered peoples’ money and given them back. I am a creator of wealth at every level. If any court finds me to be corrupt, it should jail me. Corruption is the bane of this country. A corrupt judge and corrupt politician is worst than armed robber.

“Nigerians should start electing presidents that have meaning and gut to take decisions.

President Buhari has got some guts but he should arrest Obasanjo for us to know that corruption is working. “Without arresting Obasanjo, he has not started fighting corruption because Obasanjo took away our $16million electricity money. So, unless he arrests Obasanjo, corruption is not being fought in Nigeria.”
