Ex-Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, has said that he invested N600million in the Peoples Democratic Party as well as election of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The ex-governor reportedly made this known on Monday in Washington DC, United States of America, when he lamented his treatment by his former party, the People’s Democratic Party despite being a major ‘stakeholder’ during a dinner.

In a recent report by Punch Newspaper, Kalu reportedly said he gave the PDP its first N500million and supported the election of former President Olusegun Obasanjo with N100million.

He said, “All of you know that if the PDP were a company, I ought to own 90 per cent of it because in 1998, I gave the party its first N500m. By then, I wasn’t in government. I also gave the presidential candidate, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, over N100m in 1998.

“How many Nigerians would have done that? Yet the same government, the same PDP, took my bank, took my airline, took my oil licence to put me out of business entirely because I proposed that I must run for president in 2007; I also opposed the 3rd term, which they are denying today,” he reportedly said.

Kalu also said the PDP hunted him for his ambition to run for the office of the president in 2007 and for opposing the third term agenda of Obasanjo.
