The former Governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, today led the National Movement Re-election of Buhari Campaign (NMRB) to the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland in Abeokuta.
Dr Uzor Kalu said he had decided to take on the campaign on behalf of other well meaning Nigerians because President Buhari was yet to complete the job of rebranding Nigeria and should be allowed to see Nigeria through to higher prosperity.
The former Governor of Abia State told the Alake that he and well meaning Nigerians were for the oneness of the country.
He argued that the problem of the Nation was that of the people in leadership positions disobeying the law.
He informed the Alake that the Group must pay due respect to Alake as a friend of President Buhari adding that the Egba Monarch and his people should support Buhari’s second term.
Dr Kalu described the days of Alake as a brilliant soldier who had served the Nation well ever since the days of Buhari/Idiagbon Regime.
He also presented two plagues for Buharis Re-election and Uzor Kalu Foundation.
In his response, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo commended Dr Uzor Kalu, a foremost politician and businessman, for coming to the West and going to the North to campaign for Buhari’s reelection adding that this was an evidence that the country had hope for a greater future.
The Alake said he had served under Buhari and knew the stuff he was made of.
Oba Adedotun Gbadebo disclosed that Dr Uzor Kalu had even assisted people of Egbaland and other Nigerians which showed that he was a great Nationalist.
The Alake prayed that just as he was doing for Buhari, others would do for him as well.
Dr Uzor Kalu’s entourage included Hon. EdozieMadu-Chioma, Prince Obidigbo, Prince Kunle Oyewumi, Dr Frank Oshile Chuks, Prince Adetuyi and Alhaji Musbau Arulogun.
