SENATOR KALU RESUMES PLENARY
The Senator representing Abia North Senatorial District, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has resumed plenary at the National Assembly since his release from the Kuje custodial facility.
The former Abia state governor arrived in the National Assembly premises at about 9.37am to an awaiting group of journalists eager to get a glimpse of him.
Responding to questions, Senator Kalu who is the Senate Chief Whip of the senate expressed happiness for being able to resume legislative business after being away for a while during the period of his incarceration.
The Senator joined other principal officers in the Senate for the day’s legislative business.
It will be recalled that Senator Kalu was released not long ago after a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos ordered his release coming on the heels of the Supreme Court’s nullification of his 12-year sentence.
The Senator was convicted in December 2019 for alleged looting of N7.65Billion.
