Kalu Calls For Healthy Working Relationship Between Executive, Legislative Arms

Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu
Eminent
businessman and former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Kalu has called on
members of the National Assembly to support the President Muhammadu Buhari-led
administration, noting that a harmonious relationship between the executive and
legislative arms of government is in the interest of Nigerians.
According
to the former Governor, members of the red chambers should reconcile their
internal differences amicable in order to focus on their legislative duties ,
adding that name- calling among themselves is dangerous for Nigeria’s
democracy.
Kalu who
is on a business trip to Belgium, made these remarks Wednesday
  while addressing some members of the Belgian-Nigeria Business
Association (BNBA)
  led by Morris Leon  on the
state of the Nigerian nation at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Brussels.

He said,
“Nigeria is gradually regaining the confidence of the international community
as President Buhari’s efforts in fighting corruption and terrorism are yielding
positive results. Within a year in office, Mr. President has through the armed
forces curbed the activities of the dreaded book-haram sect and normalcy has
now returned to the North East and other parts of the Northern Nigeria.
President Buhari has also visited many developed countries to facilitate and
strengthen business relationships with Nigeria.
“The
investment destination in Africa is Nigeria. The country is blessed with
untapped resources including a vast market owing to population of approximately
200 million people. I make bold to say that any investor that has not invested
in Nigeria will regret in the nearest future. There are opportunities in
agriculture, solid minerals, tourism and services among others. Currently, the
Nigerian government is supporting initiatives aimed at diversifying the economy
as against depending on oil”.
On the
leadership crisis rocking the Nigerian Senate, Kalu noted that it is important
for the Senators to settle their internal differences amicable and not lose
focus on their legislative duties for which they were elected.
According
to him, the purpose of the National Assembly is to make laws that will benefit
the citizenry, pointing out that members of the red chambers have spent too
much time on internal wrangling.
