How I reconciled Buhari, Babangida in 2005 – Orji Uzor Kalu

Orji Uzor Kalu, Senate Chief Whip, has disclosed that he once reconciled President Muhammadu Buhari, former Military Head of State, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, IBB.

Disclosing that he organised the meeting at his Igbere country hometown, Abia State in 2005, Kalu said Chukwuemeka Ojukwu and Alex Ekweume were in attendance.

He disclosed this while responding to comments on a photograph taken during the event which he posted on his verified Facebook page.

The former Abia State governor said the photograph which he posted to mark Ojukwu’s posthumous birthday was not photoshopped as insinuated.

Kalu wrote: “Good morning my dear friends, I have read a few comments insinuating that the picture attached is photoshopped. No, it is not.

”The picture was taken in 2005 at my country home Igbere when I had the honour to host and reconcile my leaders; Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu of blessed memory; President Muhammadu Buhari; former military president Ibrahim Babangida and former vice president Alex Ekwueme of blessed memory.

“Prior to the reconciliation, President Buhari and President Babangida were not talking to each other.”
