Why Orji Uzor Kalu May Be Chief Whip From Jail

The senator and former governor of Anambra State Chief Orji Uzor Kalu hs currently facing trial at the federal high court in Lagos for fraud amounting to about N7.65b.

He was dragged to court along with the Slok group, his company which allegedly facilitated the fraud. The anti-corruption body which is handling his case seems to have concluded investigations and has left the mater to the court to decide.

The alleged fraud was said to have been committed when he was the governor of Abia state.

Like former Governor Joshua Dariye, Orji Uzor Kalu may serve as a senator from prison if he is eventually convicted of the crime.

He will not be the first senator to face such treatment as some former governors who were serving senators also suffered the same fate.

His rising political profile will also be affected as he is currently the chief whip of the Senate. There are also indications that he may be a top contender in the 2023 presidential race.

It is still uncertain whether he might resign to fate or appeal the judgment in court to avoid any further damage to his reputation.
