2023 Presidency: Northern Youths To Orji Kalu, Presidency Is Not For Jail Birds

Press Release


THE attention of the Northern Youth Council of Nigeria has been drawn to massive online and offline Presidential campaigns for Senator Orji Uzo Kalu, the former Governor of Abia State. While it is within his fundamental human right to aspire for any office, we see his recent move as an attempt to completely rubbish what is left of Nigeria’s integrity before the World.


Otherwise, how can someone who has been convicted of a criminal offence and sentenced to a term of imprisonment for fraud; a sentence that was further upheld by both Appeal and the Supreme Courts and which he has started serving have the courage  to aspire for the office of  the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria?

It is on record  that Sen Orji Kalu hid under judicial technicality to evade serving his full sentence. We wonder if  he and his promoters can’t  see that he is too dirty and tainted to stand for any office, including that of Prisoners Governor. What is still keeping Sen Kalu in our Hallowed Red Chamber is the inability of the EFCC to revisit his case and start Prosecuting as recommended by the Court that Technically ordered for his release. When such is done One Million times, Sen Orji will be found guilty One Million times. All Courts in the Land have found him guilty of Stealing Public funds. The presumption of innocence is no longer on his side.

Therefore, we wish to call on the Chairman of the EFCC and the Chief Law Officer of our Country, Abubakar Malami, SAN to tidy up the process of arraigning Sen Orji Uzoh Kalu so that he can go back to where he rightly belong to in order to save Nigeria further embarrassment. When they fail to do so, the Council will be force to seek Court Order to mandate them to do what is expected without.

Lastly, we wish to counsel those who have stolen their states resources or have looted our national treasury to stay far away from 2023 Presidential bid, as Our Presidency will henceforth be occupied by people of honour not Jail Birds.
