Reverend Ukpai Kalu of the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, has applauded the Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu for his “exceptional’’ performance since assuming office as the Senator representing Abia North senatorial district.
He praised Kalu in an interview with newsmen in Nkporo, Ohafia local government area.
“Although I am not a politician, but you have to accept it if somebody does well. I can assure you that Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has done excellently since he was elected in 2019.
“For example in Ohafia local government area, I can count about 10 rural roads constructed by him in the space of two years as a Senator. Some of them were constructed by him when he was a Governor; roads like the Asaga-Ndi Ibe-Amuma-Amangwu-Okon roads. I have also seen the the ongoing seven-kilometre Akanu Ukwu-Abia Road and two-kilometre Isiugwu-Ohafia Road projects and renovated Ugwu Afia Primary School, Akanu Ohafia.
“I have also seen the four-kilometer Amokwe-Item–Ugwu Rubber Road and 7.5-kilometre Amurie-Nkporo-Abiriba Road under construction.
“Some people were there for decades with zero impact for our people. Kalu has done exceptionally well and I’m using this opportunity to commend him, as well as urge his constituents to continue to entrust the affairs of the zone to him,” he said.
