The current Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has disclosed that he would not criticize or praise the Governor Okezie Ikpeazu-led administration due to some reasons which are personal to him.

The former Abia state governor made this disclosure when he paid Governor Okezie Ikpeazu a courtesy visit at his country home in Umuobiakwa, Obingwa LGA.

‘This governor is my mother’s son, that’s why you can never see my media group attacking him because my mother will not agree.

‘When I wanted to come, I told her I was going to see the governor and she said greet him for me. I thank the governor for having me,’ Senator Kalu said.

He explained that the meeting was first of its kind where he had a sincere discussion with Governor Ikpeazu.

‘We’ve had our discussion, we discussed the good, the bad and the ugly. We were naked, the both of us saw face to face, we discussed. He told me the truth and I also told him the truth.

‘I reminded him that when I was the governor, I used to go with him to ANPP House, APGA and  I was not partisan. I want him to be that kind of governor. Let him not be a Governor that will limit where to enter. Let entry point not be a barrier to you.

‘This is our state, after politics both of us would be in the old Governor’s club.’

While talking about the 2023 general elections, the former Abia governor reminded Ikpeazu to join the Abia South senatorial race.

‘You better join me in the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the next 15 months.

‘This is bipartisanship and I am not afraid of anyone, I speak my mind at all time. I told him the day I came with the Senate President that we need him in the Senate.  So, the ball is on you and the game is on you.’

On the state of roads in Abia, he appealed to Governor Ikpeazu to consider reconstructing the Umuahia-Uzoakoli-Alayi-Igbere-Ohafia road.
