It reads, “While our role as a regional body is to promote and encourage institutions and persons to uphold human dignity across

the world, we must not fail to mention the commendation of our Nigerian team over your resolute efforts in the stability of your

country and your firm leadership of the Nigerian Senate which is adjudged to be among the most proactive parliaments across

the world.”

This is coming after Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, who is a former governor of Abia State and also the Senator-elect of Abia North

senatorial district made a promise to reconcile the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki together with the National Leader of the

All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu according to reports from The Sun News. He disclosed this much as he

fielded questions from journalists in Johannesburg during the endorsement of the African National Congress (ANC) on Tuesday.

Kalu made the promise to intervene in the rift, noting that it is not necessary for politics to cause disaffection between friends

and family.

He also made an appeal to both men to swallow their pride and sheathe their swords in the interest of Nigeria’s still budding

democracy.

“I am unhappy over the exchange of words between my dear brothers, Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and National Leader

of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. The duo of Saraki and Tinubu have contributed immensely to

nation building in different capacities. Having known the duo of Saraki and Tinubu for decades, I am not comfortable with the

media war. As a mutual friend to both parties, it is my responsibility to intervene in the rift for the sake of friendship.”

Kalu, while acknowledging the enormous contributions of Saraki and Tinubu to the political development of nation, recalled the

age-long and close relationships between the former governors of Kwara and Lagos states. He further gave an advice to the media

to exercise more caution and professionalism in the manner in which they report sensitive national issues, adding that the

political class should not endanger the polity.
