Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide (OYC) have hailed the Supreme Court ruling which quashed the conviction of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu

It urged Mr Kalu to enter into plea bargaining with EFCC and return all money which he is being accused of stealing from the coffers of Abia State Government treasury and forfeit alleged properties acquired illegally back to the State Government.

According to the group, this is the only way for him to be totally free from the hook of EFCC’s net adding that if he does this, posterity will be kind to him.
