According to the statement, the youths noted that they know Kalu could afford his nomination form but want to show appreciation for all he has done for them. The youth said they want to make sure no stone is left unturned in ensuring that he gets to the National Assembly where they are sure he will make a mark.
Speaking to newsmen about the campaign, National Secretary of the O.U.K volunteers, Emeh James Anyalekwa explained that #7000Youth4OUK was not driven by monetary benefits.
It is a mass movement, a practical show of love by youths who believe in OUK”, he said, adding, “We are Youths who have been positively impacted by OUK legacies via Free Education, Scholarships, Employments etc.
“There are over 10, 000 youths in Nigeria who are directly employed by Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu and over 100, 000 who indirectly depend on his employment in order to survive.”
The secretary observed that Kalu has impacted on many lives through his business empire.
He said, “Kalu has built and still building more companies to employ the youths than any other Nigerian politician living or dead”.
“OUK has made more Youth Millionaires and Billionaires than any other Abia Politician iving or dead, these are verifiable facts.
“OUK Gave Free Education in Abia from 1999-2007. The Children Who Benefited from these people oriented programmes are now successful adults who want to show appreciation and love to a man who has done so much for the Youths.
“It’s on record that OUK Paid 13th Month Salary to Civil Servants from 1999-2007. Mass of the beneficiaries were Youths. OUK has made more Youth Millionaires and Billionaires than any other Abia Politician living or dead”.
National Coordinator OUK Volunteers, Barrister Benjamin Kalu said, “2018 will go down in history as the first time 7000 Youths in Nigeria would support a politician with both their PVC and ATM cards. “
“As a private Individual, Kalu in two years has attracted more Kilometres of roads than all the NASS members in Abia state put together, why should we have such a personality and misfits are representing us in the Senate?”.
“A single road built by Kalu from Aba to Umuahia, the old Aba-Umuahia Expressway was longer than all the roads constructed by T.Orji’s administration from 2007-2015.”
