The National Director, Special Duties of the PDP Youth Alliance, Dr Emeka Kalu has lashed out against those behind attacks on the former governor of Abia State, Senator T.A Orji and his son, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji.
In a telephone interview with Jungle Journalist Media Limited, Kalu described corruption allegations against the Orjis as ‘wicked, malicious and mischievous, from desperate and failed politicians’.
He said “There is a group of politicians in Abia whose only job is to run down the governor, his government, and anyone in power in the state. They have been cooking up all manner of attacks and the latest is the lame one against the former governor of Abia State, Senator T.A Orji and his son, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji.
“They have made a phantom case of corruption against the senator and the speaker, that one did not work. That case was wicked, malicious and mischievous, the handiwork of failed desperate politicians. They are merchants of evil in Abia State.
“They have planted fake reports in media outlets, claiming all manner of things, from arrests to invitations. They have also tried to cause mayhem in Abia State, using the machinery of paid street protests. Unfortunately for them, sharing formula became an issue even without the actual protest taking place.
“Senator Orji served his term as governor agreeably well, and his legacies are out there for all to see. That’s why he was quickly elected back as a Senator.
“Hon Chinedum Orji has also proven his mettle in leadership to deserve the position of speaker at the House of Assembly.
“Some of their attackers are people who are just bitter but they cannot change what God has made to be”, Kalu quipped.
