Dreams are precious desires that everyone would want to achieve with a great passion, but despite the great compliment of the formidable man of milestones and honors; who at 22 was the president, Students Union Government (SUG), University of Maiduguri; chairman of Borno Water Board at 25; chairman of Cooperative and Commerce Bank at 27; chairman of Imo State Marketing Agency at 28 and Abia governor at 39, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, OUK, former governor of Abia State is now on the upswing.
The very ambitious but not inordinate Kalu has no doubt made a statement with his impeccable business and political resume over the years and you can give it to him any day, although many political observes have yet to come to terms with his ambition to occupy Aso rock come 2019 because of the delicate zoning system that has hampered many aspirants to the plum seat in Aso-Rock, but Orji Kalu remains fastidious and resolved in his ambition, going by the resilient way he has been going around with stakeholders and decision makers in the political arena, albeit sultry and methodical. Like other nationalists of the past, he has been putting measures in place to actualizes his dream.
How his ambition will fall in place, will now depend largely on the political platform to launch himself into the contentious presidential race that he's silently but hotly being pursued by many in his ilk; but there are indications that he's inching towards APC where he can have a soft landing. The coming months will surely unfold gradually what Orji Kalu will be strategizing and formulating in his strides to make his dream come true in 2019.
