“Nigerian Senators Behaves More Like Secondary school Students Than Lawmakers” — Sen. Orji Kalu

SAHARANEWS – Former Abia State Governor and Senate Chief Whip, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, has described the Senate as a very simple institution.

Speaking at the 40th-anniversary celebration of the founder of Destiny International Mission, Uyo, on Saturday, Kalu said he discovered that senators behave like students in secondary school with the Senate president as the class prefect.

Kalu noted that he doesn’t want to make noise because he believes in working.

He also recalled his academic sojourn in the University of Maiduguri, where he refused to complete his studies because the authorities sacked his colleagues but recalled him and a few others.

“But Prof Jubril Aminu took me as his son, not his boy but his son because God was with me.

“When I went to the Senate, I found out that it was a very simple institution. The senators behave like students in secondary school with the Senate president as the class prefect. I don’t want to make noise because I believe in working,” he said.

He also described himself as a “child of destiny whose footsteps are ordered only by God”.
