Former Governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has advised Goveror Ayo Fayose of Ekiti to concentrate on criticising policies and performance and not personalities.

Aside the persistent attacks on the person of President Muhammadu Buhari, he said, that Fayose recently accused him of deceiving Igbo people.

Kalu gave advice to Fayose on Sunday in Lokoja where he delivered a keynote, “Mainstream Igbo in Nigeria politics,” at the inauguration of Ndigbo Support Group for Governor Yahaya Bello (GYB).

The former governor explained that his political decisions were always in the interest of Igbo and Nigerians.

“A few weeks ago, Fayose granted an interview, saying I am deceiving the Igbo.

“How can I deceive the Igbo when I am taking you to the centre stage of Nigeria politics, when I am taking you to be part of Nigeria’s decision making, when I am taking you to stand with 24 governors than to stand with 10 governors?

“How can I deceive you when you will be part of ministerial decision? How can I deceive you when by tomorrow you will be part of the Federal Government than to stand with a minority party?

“This is not the spirit of an Igbo man. Our spirit is to belong where other Nigerians are. That is the spirit other Igbo man should carry along. As Igbo, it behoves on us to stand by the truth.’’

Kalu also advised Fayose against taking his criticism of President Buhari personal, but to base it on performance.

“My friend, Governor Ayo Fayose, should focus his criticism on President Muhammadu Buhari on performance and not on his family, not also going personal.

“When we were in government, we focused our criticism on former President Obasanjo’s performance for the interest of our people. I didn’t go personal when I was governor under the Obasanjo government. I based my stand on issues.

“On third term agenda, I was very specific that it was unrealistic and could not stand.’’
