By Ignatius Okpara, Enugu – Leaders of Igbo students in various institutions of higher learning in Nigeria, under the aegis of “Association of Igbo student leaders” have petitioned the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Independent Corrupt Practices And Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) calling for the speedy trial of ex-Abia Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, over his alleged financial misconduct while in office.
The group, complained bitterly that the trial of the former Governor by the anti-graft agencies had dragged on for too long.
They wondered why Orji Kalu, would be allowed to contest the last election when he still has a case to answer with the EFCC.
The students, who also forwarded their petition to the Code of Conduct Bureau, noted that “it’s against the rule of morality to have allowed Orji Kalu, and other former politicians under trial to contest the last elections as that will encourage impunity in the society.
The body in a statement signed by its Chairman, Comrade Job Ndukwe, and Secretary, comrade Emeka Okigbo, as well as comrade Nwigwe Alex,PRO, made available to AFRICAN EXAMINER in Enugu on Saturday had accused Orji Kalu of diverting state funds when he “misruled” Abia state between 1999 to 2007.
They however, called on President Mohammadu Buhari to take steps “to prosecute all those that looted our commonwealth, no matter their status,” promising to back the President in “this patriotic duty.”
