L-R: Prince Paul Ikonne and Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu

A Chieftain of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, Abia State chapter, Prince Paul Ikonne has come hard on the former Abia State governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu over his style of leadership in Abia.

Ikonne who spoke with journalists yesterday in Abuja, said the alleged wrong foundation laid by the former governor had taken the state 16 years backward.

According to him, 95 per cent of the people of Abia were not happy with the way Kalu governed for eight years, he faulted the ex-governor’s comment on the date for the return of President Muhammadu Buhari who had been away on medical vacation in the United Kingdom.

“If Abia is backward, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu laid the foundation; he laid a very wrong foundation for Abia State and should not be making statements that are false.

“My advice to him will be to keep quiet, be in a sober mood, go in for retreat and try as much as he can to build a path of peace. He should embark on a mission to reconcile everybody.

“I witnessed a situation where elders knelt down for Kalu to do the right things in Abia, yet he didn’t do them. He should not scare people away from APC with his style of leadership because we need a strong APC in Abia State.

“Last time, the same Dr. Kalu told Nigerians that President Buhari would return soon, and he is not the spokesman of the president. Till now, the president is yet to return; these are not the characters we need. He should keep quiet and learn to live like an elder statesman,” he added.
