Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), has conferred on the former governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, the distinguished holder of the group’s honorary award.
The conferment by the Yoruba socio-cultural group was conveyed to Kalu in a letter dated June 9, and signed by its National Coordinator, Aare Gani Adams.
Adams said the award is in recognition of the former governor’s consistent support and courage in the course of the June 12 struggle since 2000, when the annual June 12 annulled election and commemoration programme started.
“There is no better way to appreciate your steadfastness towards the ideals of the group other than to write your name in gold for identifying with the core values of democracy and good governance. Once again, we say congratulations on this new honour and award,” the letter read in part.
