Former Abia State Governor and Chief Whip of the Senate, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, has said going to prison has made him a better person.
According to him, the prison experience was an eye-opener and something that revealed many secrets to him.
He said this during a Thanksgiving session at the Love World Incorporated, otherwise known as Christ Embassy.
“I am happy that I went to prison. I went to prison and I am out. I am happy because, going to prison has made me a refined, better and more forward looking man.
I went to prison and discovered many secrets that I never believed that could happen,” he said.
Recall that Senator Kalu, was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment in December 2019, on corruption charges but he was released from Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja in June 2020, after the Federal High Court in Lagos presided by Justice Muhammed Liman ordered his release, following a Supreme Court judgment nullifying his trial and conviction.
The Supreme Court had, in May, ruled that the trial and judgment delivered by Justice Mohammed Idris against Kalu and two others were null and void since the trial judge had no juridiction, having been elevated to the Court of Appeal.
