…calls on world leaders to embrace dialogue
Contrary to speculations as reported on social media platforms, former Governor of Abia State and eminent businessman, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, has disclosed that his visit to Venezuela was a peace initiative of the Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation and its partners across the globe. He denied that his meeting with President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, was to cut oil deals.
The Abia North Senatorelect stated that for any nation to thrive, there must be peace and harmony. Kalu, who stated that he used the opportunity of his visit to also meet with members of the Afro-Venezuelan community, called on the governments of the United States of America, United Kingdom, China, Russia, Nigeria and others to fashion out an inclusive and integrated strategy to overcome the crisis facing Venezuela. Speaking with journalists at the Simon Bolivar International Airport yesterday, the philanthropist stressed that foreign leaders and diplomatic corps across the globe are deliberating on the challenges being faced by Venezuela in a bid to restore peace and normalcy. Kalu said: “I am in Venezuela in my capacity as the founder and chief promoter of Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation. “The visit is in line with our foundation’s objective of promoting peace across the world. “We are working with development partners and critical stakeholders to ensure peace and prosperity in Venezuela.
“We are living in a global community and as such, we must continue to promote and sustain peace initiatives across the world.” Kalu, who did not disclose details of his meeting with President Maduro, noted that upon his return to Nigeria, he (Kalu) would brief President Muhammadu Buhari and convey a note from Maduro to the Nigerian leader. He added, “President Buhari has continually played leading roles in promoting world peace. This feat will, in no distant time, earn Nigeria’s President, the Noble Peace Prize.” The former governor, who was seen off by Venezuelan Deputy Foreign Minister, Yvan Gil, has since departed Caracas for Germany. Kalu is expected back in Nigeria this weekend.
