Delivering a paper titled ‘Mainstreaming Igbo in Nigeria’, Abia State former governor, Orji Uzor Kalu who was guest speaker of the inauguration of Igbo Support group for Governor Yahaya Bello in Lokoja, blasted the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose over uncomplimentary utterances against the personality of President Buhari.
Orji Uzor Kalu, who blasted Fayose forsaying he was deceiving the Igbos, by dumping the Peoples Democratic Party PDP for the All Progressive Congress (APC), instructed Fayose to stop criticizing the President Buhari over his health, and focus on making his state a better place.
Kalu further said he’s still friends with Fayose, but that the governor goofed to say that he was deceiving Igbos for defecting to APC.
“Fayose should endeavour to show the people of Ekiti the essence of good governance rather than engaging himself on unnecessary criticism of Mr. President and others perceived as arch enemies”, he added.
Kalu said that he once engaged ex President Olusegun Obasanjo while in office as governor, saying that he criticized him on the issues of third term agenda and road construction in the East.
“I have never attacked the personality of the former President Obasanjo like Fayose always drags the name of President Buhari to mud, particularly his health related issues”, he stated
