A lot of media wars have been going on between Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State and his predecessor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu. The two personalities have said different things at the same time and are still going to say more: things they did when we were not with them while they held sway in the government house, Umuahia, when Kalu served as governor; 1999-2007.

As a matter of urgency, I would like to add my voice to some of the controversies especially in the area of development, as the two once pals are deafening our ears with their comments. As we may recall, in January 2012, the incumbent governor of Abia State was everywhere in the media, claiming that he was out to re-write the history of the state, two years after he shifted tent with Kalu.

He told newsmen that his first term was for three years full of litigations against his victory in the 2007 elections. He also told the world that he was held down by Kalu not to perform within this period, a statement he did not put on the margin of an allegation, but that it was a fact.

Many of us joined him in this outcry that Kalu should leave him alone, in order to perform. We joined in the governor’s harangue, because he told the world that he was in complete bondage by his estranged political mentor. Today, many of us have held those positions to be counterfeit-history as we know better.

But what is not history is that four years after the two political friends parted ways, they have entangled themselves in a war we all can see might not end in the near. There are claims by the government of building many of the roads in the state, something that Kalu had severally debunked that his administration put up the roads when he served Abia State as governor.
