Kalu made remark during a joint press conference with members of the Coalition of Northern Groups.

The former Governor said, “It is an issue of great concern to the region; the young people on the street do not know the damage the Biafra agitation does to the GDP of the region.


“The GDP of the area has gone down grossly; I am an entrepreneur and I know it.

“Cameroon, Chad, Niger and others used to buy goods from Aba, now how many of them still go there?

“We resolved this issue when I was the governor of Abia; I resolved it with Ralph Uwazulike and he listened; we will speak with Nnamdi Kanu and he will listen.”

The former governor maintained that the diversity and demography of Nigeria was its strength, adding that every part of the country has something to offer for its development.

“We need to put more money on capital projects, I recommend 25 per cent for recurrent and 75 per cent for capital.

“If the federal and state governments had invested in agriculture, the North should be making about 150 billion dollars from agriculture yearly.

“This is the only country that traverses from the Atlantic Ocean to Sahara desert; some people are asking God to give them just one; we the Atlantic Oceanhe country united,” he said.
