Nigeria unfair to me; Former Governor sheds tears at 9th Senate’s Valedictory Session
Chief Whip of the outgoing 9th Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has lamented that Nigeria has not been fair to him despite his contribution to nation building.
Kalu, who shed tears during the Senate valedictory session currently ongoing at the National Assembly on Saturday, said people he gave transport fares to travel to Lagos are now living in wealth while calling him a thief.
The former Abia State governor thanked the 9th Senate for standing by him during his difficult times, insisting that Nigeria has not been fair to him.
“When I had a problem, most of the Senators stood by me. We went through difficult period,” Kalu said during an emotional speech.
“Before I went into politics, I can buy anything I wanted to buy. I am not a thief.
“People I gave transport money to Victoria Island (VI) are now in wealth and living as saint while I am being called a thief.
“This country is not fair to some of us. People who cannot explain their source of wealth are not thiefs.
“I have factories in Lagos, Aba and Ota in Ogun State, they call me a thief,” Kalu lamented while shedding tears during the veledictory session.
