Going to prison is an honour for politicians - Reps leadership Tells Enbattled Senator, Orji Uzor Kalu

                                      Please don't handcuff me - Orji Uzor Kalu begs after being ...
The leadership of Nigeria's green chambers while reacting to the released of one of them, Orji Kalu from the prison has described going to prison as an honor for politicians.

The Principal Officers of the House of Representatives said this during a solidarity visit to Senate Chief Whip Orji Uzor Kalu, who was recently released from the Nigeria Correctional Centre in Kuje, Abuja.

Deputy Speaker Ahmed Idris Wase who represented speaker of the lower chamber of the national assembly Femi Gbajabiamila at the outing said the leadership of the House was in Kalu’s home to sympathize with him over his incarceration.

He urged the former Governor of Abia state to see his incarceration as a "badge of honor" and also put everything before God.

Wase said; “We are here to sympathize with you on what happened and your incarceration. As a politician, I want you to take it as one of those things. 
“First, we congratulate you and urge you to put everything before God and believe it is part of destiny. My leader, the late Chief Solomon Lar, told me not to fear, as a politician, to go to prison.
“He told me that going to prison is a badge of honour. If you are a good politician, you should be willing to taste prison experience because it will come to you in very many dimensions.
“That happened to us sometime in the past when we were being chased and humiliated, and he asked us to be resolute and face the issues as they were. He reminded us of how he was sentenced to over 90 to 150 years in prison. He told us that as leaders, there is always a judgement that could be passed.
“As our leader, we want you to appreciate what God has done for you; use it for the positive development of our country’s judicial system; use it in the interest of humanity.”
