Two-time Minister for Finance, Kalu Idika Kalu, has disagreed with Shiekh Ahmad Gumi over his comment on the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and the agitation for Biafra.
Gumi had in a post, said that the emergence of Obi had slowed down the agitation for Biafra by IPOB members, claiming that the ‘noise’ about Biafra is all about South East clinching the presidency.
But in an exclusive interview with Vanguard, Kalu, said that Obi’s background and upbringing had nothing to suggest what Gumi was insinuating.He advised the Muslim cleric not to link Obi with any self-determination agitation probably to de-market him.
Kalu argued that Obi’s objective was to build a more equitable economy that would take Nigeria out of the woods.
“I know Obi very well. He has worked with people from all parts of the country. His objective is to build a robust economy for the country.”
