The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Kalu, on Tuesday, said Nigeria’s unity is paramount and not negotiable and equally commended President Muhammadu Buhari in his determined efforts to curb insurgency in the North East.

The Former Governor of Abia State made this known at the palace of Eze Dr G. I Ezekwesiri Ochi 1 of Isuochi, Umunneochi LGA of Abia State while acknowledging the role of traditional rulers in sensitizing the people on the need for national cohesion.

He said, “the efforts of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government in the fight against insurgency should be applauded.

“The role of traditional institutions in promoting peace and harmony cannot be undermined.

“Royal fathers are close to the grassroots and as such, they should be supported in the noble cause of nation building.

“Nigerians must place national interest above personal and selfish ambitions.
“Nigeria is one and united”.

Kalu while calling for close collaboration among all tiers of government, urged community leaders to support government’s efforts in overcoming the menace of violence and other social vices.

Appreciating the giant strides of the former Governor across Nigeria, Eze Ezekwesiri urged Kalu to sustain his philanthropic efforts, which he described as robust and legendary, adding that the exemplary leadership qualities of the Senate Chief Whip will earn him greater leadership opportunities in the nearest future.
