Senate Presidency Stop Peddling Lies Against Me – Orji Kalu

Senate Chief Whip, Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu has cried out over what he described as attacks on his person as part of intrigues surrounding the race for the position of senate presidency.

The former Abia State governor made this known in a statement, yesterday, saying people have resorted to telling lies with the aim of damaging his reputation over the position.

Kalu said the Senate should be focused on how to improve the lives of Nigerians that they were elected to represent, rather than attacking him over the position.

He said: ‘By June 13, the National Assembly would be electing a new leadership to spearhead the affairs of the 10th Senate. As the race continues to gain the attention of all Nigerians, I implore my dear colleagues who have interest in the Presidency of the senate to focus more on the difference they can make rather than exerting energy on blackmails.

‘To progress and succeed as a nation, we must shun hatred, lies and propaganda. People are telling lies against my person; using my name for gossip, buying and selling. Because of position, people have embarked on high level and low level character assassination and defamation of Orji Uzor Kalu. We should always remember God’s authority in our lives. We should remember that the life we live is not for ourselves alone but for God and to then accommodate other people.’

Meanwhile, the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, has said he has no preferred candidates for the leadership of both the Senate and the House of Representatives in the 10th National Assembly.

Tinubu, represented by the Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima, disclosed this at the meeting with new members-elect to the National Assembly in Abuja.
