Orji Kalu spoke on Friday during the celebration of Mass to mark his 63rd birthday in Abuja, presided over by the Metropolitan Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, Ignatius Kaigama.

He tasked the church to work with the All Progressives Congress (APC) led-government for the entrenchment of peace and development in the country.

The lawmaker said: “Our President-elect is not sick. It is not true that he’s sick. I don’t want to say much. He is in good health; he is himself.”

Recalling a conversation that ensued between him and his colleague in the Senate regarding the President-elect’s health, Kalu said: “One of my colleagues said yesterday he heard that the President-elect, Tinubu, was in the hospital.

“I told him the incoming president was not in the hospital; it is not true that he is in hospital. We argued. He is a senior member of the Senate and my former colleague as governor, but of another party. He disagreed with me in my house yesterday. I told him the President-elect was okay.”

Kalu said Tinubu would be arriving in Nigeria before the end of the month, declaring: “He is in good health. He is just resting and taking his time to be able to plan his government because there is a lot of task to be done.

“We have a lot of problems on our hands. We have problem of economy; we have problem of disagreement, people-by-people; we have the problem of security which is awesome. We need to tackle it as soon as possible.”

Earlier, Kalu said the focus of APC will be reconciliation, peace and the security of the people of Nigeria. He said: “We need to secure the people of Nigeria; we need to think about the masses; we need to think about the women; we need to think about the society and we need to think about the less privileged. We need to think deeply that people must eat.”

On his re-election to the Senate, Kalu said: “I nearly lost election in my constituency and this is where I had been governor for eight years. It is something I have to talk about. Please pardon me that I have to use today.

“I won because of goodwill, the people and BVAS. I didn’t do anything extraordinary on election day. I was in my house; there was no money to give to anybody. I had no agents in the polling units because there was no money to pay agents. It was just the grace of God.

“Senator Abaribe is here. It is the same fate he faced. What gave us victory, both of us, were the people and the BVAS.”

In his remarks, Archbishop Kaigama said Kalu is God’s project in the making.

According to the priest, “being a member of the Senate, they have an enormous responsibility. He has to shine, he has to be very impactful in the Senate, so we hope that he will drive the process of making Nigeria a better place.

“We are eager, we are thirsting, we are hungry for a better Nigeria and I think he is one person that can do that through his enormous contributions in the Senate.

“So, whatever role he plays in the Senate, let him play it well and maximally so that we can have that desired change for a better Nigeria.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Orji Uzor Kalu had recently declared his intention to contest for Senate Presidency in the 10th National Assembly.
