Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, a former governor of Abia state has reacted to the verdict of the Supreme Court directing his trial by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
According to Kalu, his trial for an alleged N2.4billion fraud when he ran the affairs of the state between 1999 and 2007 gives him an opportunity to voice out, The Nation reports.
Moment after the Supreme Court’s ruling on Friday, March 18, Kalu speaking from London said: “This is another opportunity to prove my innocence.
“I have all the records and facts of the case. I am willing to submit myself for the rule of law to take its course. That has always been my passion advocacy, right from the lower courts where the case emanated “This clarification has become imperative lest oppositional forces mischievously misinterpret the ruling and mislead the public by injecting their jaundiced opinions into the routine directive as had always been with similar cases where the apex court intervened.”
He assured the EFCC of his “continued support and profound cooperation in any further investigation into this allegation,’’ and also claimed it “is part of the price I have to pay for opposing the third-term agenda fiasco of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.”
