Abia State Governor, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has asked his supporters to relax their minds in view of the gale of impeachments sweeping through many states. He assured them that there is no cause for alarm.

Speaking to aviation correspondents in Lagos on Sunday morning, on his way to the Gambia, Kalu emphasized that his grip on the state was not threatened, adding:“There is nothing like impeachment train moving to Abia.”

He said a formidable forum already exits where governors express their views, adding that Governor Lucky Igbinedion of Edo State is currently talking on behalf of the governors. Kalu however, said that from what is happening in Nigeria, it appears the nation’s democracy is experiencing some problems, adding, that “such a situation is terrible for us.”

On his presidential ambition, Kalu said: “My structure is very strong and we’re making sure that we’ll win the elections next year. We’ll redeem Nigeria and return Nigeria to Nigerians.” Asked whether he was not worried over the controversy in the ongoing voters’ registration, Kalu said: “Nobody is going to succeed himself, either way it goes. If they like, let them delay it. We’ll work out details of it. I’m not comfortable about the whole thing. I believe we should be able to do better and I believe INEC will do better.”

On e-voting process, Kalu said he had nothing against it provided it prevents rigging.
He said that the most important thing in electoral processes was for the mandate of the people to prevail and the rule of law protected.

“We cannot put up reforms without electricity, water, rail transport, etc. The reforms should have a human face.”
