…Orji Kalu says he’s dedicated to his constituents
Senator Orji Kalu on Tuesday has resumed duty at the Senate by attending the plenary session following his release from Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja.
While addressing the journalists shortly after his arrival at the National Assembly Complex, Kalu, representing Abia North constituency, however promised that better days are ahead for his constituents.
The former Abia State Governor further expressed that he is committed to completing the task he had left unattended to for the past six months.
“There is hope. A lot of things still needed to be done. You people should allow me go and do the job I have not done for my constituency,” he said.
“They know I was (an) action governor and I am going to be (an) action senator; so there is no problem.
“My constituency and Nigerians, we need to focus our agenda to them. Let’s keep hope alive and see what the future brings,” he stressed.
On December 5, 2019, Kalu was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment by a Lagos Division of the Federal High Court presided over by Justice Mohammed Idris for N7.65 billion fraud.
The judgment was however set aside by a seven-member panel of the Supreme Court leading to his freedom.
