Former Abia State governor Orji Uzor-Kalu has bemoaned his alleged unfair treatment by his former party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Kalu who recently decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) narrated how he donated the sum of 500 million naira to PDP shortly after Nigeria returned to democracy and the party was birthed in 1998.
Said Kalu on Monday:
“All of you know that if the PDP were a company, I ought to own 90 per cent of it because in 1998, I gave the party its first N500m. By then, I wasn’t in government. I also gave the presidential candidate, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, over N100m in 1998.
“How many Nigerians would have done that? Yet the same government, the same PDP, took my bank, took my airline, took my oil licence to put me out of business entirely because I proposed that I must run for president in 2007; I also opposed the 3rd term, which they are denying today.”
