Former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, who defied the “no entry” statement of the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, leading his Peace Advocacy Tour to the state on Sunday, urged Nigerians not to listen to the former Nigerian leader, Obasanjo because he never listened to his advice while he was in power.
The former Abia governor who is the acting chairman of the advisory board for the National Movement for the Reelection of President Buhari, led his team to Ekiti in continuation of the tour to garner support for the President.
A statement from the Ekiti State government on Saturday had warned Mr. Kalu and his Peace Advocacy Tour to stay away from the state. The government instead urged him to visit other troubled states of Benue, Taraba and other sections of the country in dire need of peace. Reacting, Kalu said,
“My attention was called from Ondo State on Saturday that Governor Fayose said I should not come to Ekiti, Fayose is my boy, he can’t stop me from coming. He is my boy and he knows he can’t stop me on anything. Governor Fayose was in my house for 90 days after he was impeached, he is my friend but he has gone beyond his limit by saying a bonafide elder statesman like me should not come to Ekiti.
“Fayose was in my state, Abia last week, nobody said he should not come, so I have declared war on him. Even if I sleep on the floor, I will still defeat Fayose on any issue.”
