Yerima Shettima Threatens To Unmask Those Behind Orji Kalu’s Ordeal

President of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum Alhaji Shettima Yerima, yesterday, disclosed they will unmask the conspirators who made sure a former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu was convicted.
This is even as he appealed to the Northern leaders not to abandon Kalu to his fate citing Kalu’s long-standing relationship with the North
Speaking with newsmen at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Wednesday, the youth leader said the former Governor's ordeal is more of political than the fight against corruption. He revealed it’s about 2023 elections adding that Nigerian youths are watching as events unfold
Yerima explained that the former Governor’s glorious outing in the last general election and his perceived closeness to Mr. President and those around him sent cold shivers into the camp of those positioning themselves to contest the 2023 election both within the APC and outside the Party.
According to him, “ They see Orji Kalu as a potential threat based on the political permutation of the possibility of the Presidency going to the South East come 2023 and they feel the best is to seize the opportunity to stop him
" You know we don't support the presidency leaving the North at this time and we still stand on that ground, but that's not what I want to address today"
"We are aware that some persons especially those within APC never believed Orji Kalu will succeed in winning the senatorial election. In fact they created so many obstacles to prevent him from getting the Party's ticket and when he eventually succeeded they conspired and mobilized forces against him winning the election proper but they are not Allah who decides, so he won the election with a landslide. Yet they went after him again through the electoral tribunal but because Allah has destined him to be in the Senate, he triumphed at the Appeal tribunal again. Yet these enemies re-strategised and again came after him through this long-standing case and turned the table around. We know all the story"
