Former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzo Kalu in a response to those who are making jest of him on his prison experience, that he’s suffering from prison experience, has on the contrary said that, he thanked God that he went to prison, maintaining that it’s part of his life story.
Kalu’s media aide, Peter Eze, said the Senator made the remark at a campaign rally for of his younger brother, Mascot Kalu, who is the All Progressives Congress candidate for the March 27 Aba North/South Federal Constituency poll.
Mr Kalu who is representing Abia North in the Senate said some prominent Abia politicians, who have been irked by his criticism against the Abia State Government, accused him of still suffering from his prison experience.
However, he compared his life journey to Biblical Joseph and former President Obasanjo.
“My conspirators thought I would be president in 2023, so they decided to cut my journey short at all cost.
“But you see, these people are not God. They think I am ashamed to have gone to prison. I am not and I don’t blame them because they don’t know my relationship with God.
“Joseph went to prison, even former President Olusegun Obasanjo went to prison.
“My going to prison is part of my life script and I am thankful God allowed it. They are little minds and wicked people, who have refused to do any project for their own people,” he said.
