Orji Uzor Kalu Speaks On Race To 10th Senate Presidency
OpenLife Nigeria reports that Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, current Chief Whip of the Senate is said to be interested in the race to Senate presidency that is expected to be constituted on June 13.
The race which has been the butt of discussions in the circle of party leaders and stakeholders has thrown up notable aspirants from the non Muslim stock. In this piece obtained from his Facebook wall, Orji Kalu adds his voice of caution against bile and character assassination.
By June 13, the National Assembly would be electing a new leadership to spearhead the affairs of the 10th Senate.
As the race continue to gain the attention of all Nigerians, I implore my dear colleagues who have interest in the Presidency of the senate to focus more on the difference they can make rather than exerting energy on blackmails.
To progress and succeed as a nation, we must shun hatred, lies and propaganda. People are telling lies against my person; using my name for gossip, buying and selling. Because of position, people have embarked on high level and low level character assassination and defamation of Orji Uzor Kalu.
We should always remember God’s authority in our lives. We should remember that the life we live is not for ourselves alone but for God and to then accommodate other people. We should remember that any wealth, power, or strength we have originated from God. Any gift or talent we have – the same is true (James 1:17; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11). Even our ability to give generously comes from God (Deuteronomy 8:18; 2 Corinthians 9:10-11). Everything we have, and everything else that exists, is all His. When we know and embrace this, we would be better people with better minds.
