Emezue in a statement in Umuahia said that the Abia state government cannot waste the scarce resources that are being used to build legacy projects to print such posters.
The governor’s spokesman hinted that Kalu’s antics are well known. He also described the ex governor as a “political leper.” According to Emezue, the former governor who is a desperate man is capable of doing anything to seek relevance and sympathy.
Political watchers recall that Kalu had fought stridently to have the incumbent succeed him after Orji, the erstwhile chief of staff to Kalu had been detained by the Olusegun Obasanjo regime on alleged corruption issues.
The unfolding brick-bat between Kalu and his successor is one of the most intriguing stories of Nigeria’s recent democracy. Why the two fell apart remains shrouded in controversy.
