Senate President Ahmad Lawan on Thursday night led a delegation of Senate leadership  to visit the Senate Chief Whip , Senator Orji Uzor Kalu in his Aso Villa residence , Abuja. 

‘The Nigeria Daily’ gathered that Minister of Foreign Affairs , Geoffrey Onyeama ; Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonna Onu; Hon. Nkiru Onyeojecha , Chief George Muoghalu we’re part of the early callers.

Ahmed Lawan  and senate principal officers arrived the Aso-Villa residence at about 7 pm  after which they proceeded for a private meeting with Kalu. 

Kalu who was Lawan’s classmate in the University of Maiduguri was released yesterday from Kuje Correctional Centre following the judgement of a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Tuesday which granted a motion seeking his release from the Kuje correctional  custody.

Among the federal lawmakers in the delegation were: Ovie Omo-Agege , Senate Deputy President; Abdullahi Yahaya, senate leader; Ajayi Borrofice, deputy senate leader; Sabi Abdullahi, deputy whip; Philip Aduda, minority whip and Sahabi Ya’u, deputy minority whip. Senator Chuka Utazi , Enugu North. 

The Nigeria Daily recalls that Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had arraigned Kalu and Ude Jones Udeogu, a former director of finance and account of Abia state on 36 counts of money laundering to the tune of N7.1 billion and they were jailed in December.

On May 8, the supreme court nullified the trial of Kalu’s co-conviction.

The apex court held that Mohammed Idris, the trial judge who had been elevated to the court of appeal at the time of the case, ought not to have presided over the matter while he was an appeal court judge.

  1. This tells you the type of leadership Nigeria parades. When organized criminals are making laws with which to run the country’s affairs. Do you need any sootsayer to tell you that Nigeria is doomed? The executive is compromised. The legislature is compromised. The judiciary is compromised. The army and the police are rotten and worst still, the populace is completely devastated. Everybody looking for what to grab from Nigeria for his/her own selfish interest. Every situation, no matter how perilous to the citizens is an opportunity to individually make financial breakthrough, as if life is all about acquiring wealth and fame. The presidency maybe the next in line to pay OUK a courtesy and solidarity visit. Only a Nigerian thing. Period.

  2. It’s a pity that our beloved country Nigeria has become so much of laughing matter. Our is a country of men not of law. Those in leadership positions have no modicum of decorum, they are shameless. The chief law enforcement officers(the justices) are rogues, the legislatures are immoral, they are above the law. The good news is that their cups are almost full to brim, when those cups become full to brim; nemesis will visit them and karma will definitely descend from great heights and crush them. These senators, the members of federal house of assembly, and those who are denying Nigerians their basic needs will pay. It will be grotesque, unless something changes, God help us all.
