He made the remark on Sunday, during a dinner hosted in his honour by Dr Nasiru Abubakar in Shanghai, China.
Kalu had, on June 2 visited the ailing president in London and told Nigerians that the president’s health was improving and also predicted that Buhari would return to the country soon.
Since Kalu’s visit, the wife of the president, Mrs Aisha Buhari and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo have also visited Buhari and corroborated the former governor’s message of improvement on the health of the president.
Speaking on several critical issues, Kanu also said Nigeria’s greatest problem stems from tribalism and religion. He regretted that Nigerians get sentimental over frivolous issues and said for the country to move forward, many things should be put aside.
On why he speaks for President Buhari he said: “It behoves on me to support the government in power and the APC policies. First, I speak as a member of the APC, second, as a friend of the president and third, as a Nigerian who wants the country to move forward. We should try to be our brothers’ keeper.”
Kanu urged Nigerians to continue to pray for our Buhari. “You see, I’m excited because as we speak, news has it that President Buhari is receiving the national chairman of APC and some governors on visit.
"This has vindicated most of us; people wanted to kill us for telling them that the president is alive and will soon be back. I don’t know what people would gain if a leader dies. It’s written in both the Bible and Koran that we should pray for our leaders. Our leaders need our prayers; they need our help and cooperation.”
Kanu expressed appreciation to his host, Dr Nasiru Abubakar and the Nigerian community in China for their prayers for Buhari. The eminent businessman also chided accused treasury looters and referred to them as ‘shameless people’ for boasting to return to power in 2019. He said corruption is the greatest challenge of the Nigerian society and regretted that people are paying lip service to it.
“People are just saying anything on it. Nigerians should be able to identify corrupt leaders. How can somebody just be given a position, and in less than two days he is already a very rich man and nobody asks questions. So, I want to encourage all of you to be agents of government.The country needs lot of healing and unity.” PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> How I Made Me =N=2.5 MILLION In 7 Days from 2 Common Product I Imported and how you can do the same.
