Kalu made this observation while speaking in an interview at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja, Lagos on Sunday.

Answering question on the sit at home order by IBOP, Kalu said it is wrong for people to sit at home, because it will affect the economy of the South East.

He said though the people have a right to agitate, but calls for enlightenment on the need to pursue a united country .

In his words, “Most people may not understand what the issues are, but, with time they will soon understand. There is strength in unity, God did not make a mistake by putting us in one country.”

The former Governor also spoke on the health of President Muhammadu Buhari as he said he visited London to have a first hand knowledge on the state of the President’s health.

“I went to Washington to visit some business partners and from there stopped at London to see Mr President, who is recovering very fast .

“I am excited over the state of health of President Buhari despite the hate messages people were spreading about him.

“I am disappointed with the statement coming from some Nigerians about the health of Mr President.

“The messages some Nigerians have been spreading in the social media is unhealthy. I am calling on Nigerians to have a change of heart.

“Being a President, does not mean, you cannot be sick, the hate messages are becoming too much . There must be good sense of tolerance among the ethic groups, we are all one,” he advised.
