Senator Orji Uzor Kalu received a rousing welcome when he returned to Abia state on Monday, July 27, months after he was released from prison.

Recall that in December 2019, the former Abia state governor was sentenced to 12 years in prison after he was convicted for N7.1bn fraud alongside his firm, Slok Nigeria Limited, and a former Director of Finance during his tenure, Ugo Udeogu.

The Supreme court on May 8, 2020, then nullified Kalu and Udeogo's conviction on grounds that the presiding judge, Justice Mohammed Idris, lacked the jurisdiction to have presided over their case. He was released from Kuje prison on June 3, 2020.

On Monday, July 27, he made a triumphant return to the state and was received by his teeming supporters.

""Lucky" man, you think the Federal Government was playing "Abracadabra" with the Supreme Court for fun; the Rogue is on their permutation for 2023 Presidency. And they are pulling wool over innocent Nigerian Faces fighting some phony Corruption in the Country.

Pen robber and prisoner is being celebrated, how then can Nigeria be free of corruption?  This is no longer a shameful act but a norm in the heartless wicked political thugs of Nigeria.

People are beginning to see now that the politicians are not the only problem. The citizens are major part of the problem.
