Leave me alone, Sen Ohuabunwa tells Kalu

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Li­nus Ef­fiong, Umuahia

The sen­a­tor rep­re­sent­ing Abia North Se­na­to­rial Zone, Chief Mao Ohuabunwa, has ad­vised his ma­jor contender, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu to watch his pub­lic ut­ter­ances.

Kalu, a for­mer gov­er­nor of Abia State, who was the se­na­to­rial can­di­date of the Pro­gres­sive Peo­ples Al­liance (PPA) for Abia North se­na­to­rial re­run elec­tion, is still chal­leng­ing Ohuabunwa at the courts.

Ohuabunwa, who called for cau­tion while dis­tribut­ing re­lief ma­te­ri­als at the Methodist Church of Nige­ria Mother­less Ba­bies Home and Lep­rosy Cen­ter Uzuakoli, yes­ter­day, said he will never com­pro­mise his man­date.

“As politi­cians, we’re ca­pa­ble of say­ing cer­tain things any­how. My man­date is di­vine, we went for the first elec­tion and I won it squarely. We had a re­run and I also de­feated him (Kalu) there. Peo­ple know my an­tecedent, the man­date is mine, God gave it to me at my own time, he had his own time as the gov­er­nor of the state, he mis­used it and I want to as­sure you that God who gave me vic­tory will re-af­firm it again,” he said.
