The lawmaker stated this during his 53rd birthday celebration where he hosted a special gathering for orphans, widows, people with disabilities, and the elderly at his country home in Bende, Abia State.

Fielding questions from newsmen during the massively-attended event, the Deputy Speaker, explained that Nigeria’s current economic ordeals were occasioned by the errors of the previous administrations in the country which, according to him, President Tinubu, is working hard to fix.

“The hardship we are passing through was not caused by this man. It’s a piled up case of previous administrations and how they mismanaged one or two things.”

Hon. Kalu urged Nigerians to be patient with President Tinubu as he makes efforts to address the challenges he inherited, claiming that his policies are beginning to yield results.

” We cannot continue to live in lies thinking that all is well. Tinubu wants to clean up the place so that we can have a genuine livelihood that is sustainable. Let’s keep supporting and encouraging him”.

He predicted a brighter future for the country after the current turbulence, urging Nigerians not to give up but to repose confidence in the current leadership of the country.
