A founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party and former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, has hailed the emergence of Chief Tony Anenih as the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Kalu, in a statement he personally signedon Tuesday, described Anenih as a Political Emeritus, whose contributions to the party as theBOT chairman would be innumerable and immeasurable.
He said the reconstitution of theBOT of the PDP could not have come at a better time than now that other parties are forging alliances to push it out of power, especially at the federal level.
He said: “I couldn’t have expected a better decision at any time other than now.”
Kalu admonished Anenih to continue with his disposition to an open door policy to all, adding that the political situation in the country now demands fairness to and justice for all.
He said: “Over the years, you have come to be known as Mr. Fit It.
“This is not because you rig elections or engage in other sharp practices.
“You have simply been able to fix things because of your openness, accommodation of all shades of opinion, willingness to bend over backwards in extreme situations and courage to speak truth to power.
“Your Excellency, please carry on in this spirit because this is what is required at this period of great political turbulence.
