Kalu Lauds Governor Otti For Restoring Dignity To Abians

The deputy speaker, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Kalu has asserted that the people of Abia state have begun to reclaim their dignity owing to the outstanding work Governor Alex Otti was putting up in the state. 

Kalu, who spoke when he visited Governor Otti at his residence in Nvosi, Isialangwa South local government area of the state, praised the governor for the selfless work he has been doing in the State since he assumed office 11 months ago.

He said: “You are doing well. I came here to tell the whole world that you are doing well.

“As the deputy speaker, you are not in my party, again, though I am regretting it that you’re not in my party. But I want you to know that among the people that came here (with me) are members of other political parties, the people that are pleased with what you are doing.

“I came to tell you that you are bringing out the name of Abia. We are solidly recovering our dignity, raising our shoulders because of your selfless approach to Governance. You are living up to your pledge.”

Kalu, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) representing Bende Federal Constituency in the House of Reps, pledged his continued support for Governor Otti, despite belonging to different political parties, for as long as he is working for Abia people.

“We are seeing it. We will stand by you come rain, come shine.

“What are we looking for in leadership if not to impact lives? You are an accomplished man. You are not looking for a big name because you have earned it before coming into politics.

“You are not looking for money, you have been eating rice before Christmas, that is the truth we know.

“We are seeing the signs; that the steps you are taking will take us to the Promised Land.

“I have sat down to analyse your approach. Your approach is, do a general work for the people first before individuals,” Kalu affirmed.

He thanked Governor Otti for the honour done to him last December, when the governor hosted a homecoming reception to welcome him back into Abia, shortly after he was elected Deputy Speaker by his colleagues in the Federal House.

Responding, Governor Otti expressed deep appreciation for the Deputy Speaker and attested to the numerous support that he has received from him.
