The businessman/politician was a guest speaker at the Professor David Ijalaiye annual lecture series organized by the Equity Chambers of the Faculty of Law, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Ile Ife.
Having delivered his lecture titled: “Leadership: Key factor to a better Nigeria”, Orji Uzor Kalu maintained that the southeast would not compromise its stands in 2015 general elections. In his words, “In 2015, what will happen is that the Igbo will vote for the Igbo, Yoruba for Yoruba and Hausa vote for Hausa. Then, we will all come to Abuja to discuss and determine who should be Nigerian President… Anybody who thinks that there is going to be a straight ballot thing to produce the President in 2015 is only fooling himself.”
Noting that his absence from politics would not stop him from campaigning against injustices, he recalled in his lecture that since 1967 when the military came into governance in the country, Nigeria is yet to produce a credible leader who would take the nation to its dreamland.
