Chief
Orji Uzor Kalu Former Abia State Governor has told Igbos not to blame anyone but themselves for the
backwardness of the South East region.
 
He disclosed this in a recent Interview. He said a
number of the elite in the region were not only ‘selfish’; they also get
their politics wrong.
 
Here are his words
 “there were more problems between Tinubu and Fashola, than
there were between me and Theodore Ahamefule Orji. But it is the
discipline of the Yorubas that kept them at bay. Igbos have no
discipline in terms of politics. They are very good traders; they’re
good in anything they do, but they don’t understand politics.”  
 
He said this about  Tinubu
and Fashola in the latter’s second term as governor of Lagos State, and
comparing it to his own internecine war with his successor, Theodore A.
Orji, which led to the extinction of the Progressive People’s Alliance,
the party he founded.  
 
In the interview, Kalu illustrated his point with a conversation he
claimed to have had with President Muhammadu Buhari, who wondered aloud
why previous high profile Igbo appointees had done nothing for the
region.
