This is a text from Godwin Adindu, President-general, Abia Renaissance Movement (ARM). The content is solely his opinion.

The former governor of Abia State, Mr. Orji Uzor Kalu is obviously angry. There is real bitterness in his heart. There is frustration all over him and this is clearly evident in his seminal writings. His ghosted writings, published under the   Leadership Series in The Sun daily tabloid is scribbled with malicious ink and inspired by the estranged wife of Muse, the goddess of vengeance.  There is fury in every line. There is murderous hatred. There is war.
