Politics NIGERIA: How Late Kure, Tinubu And I Scuttled Obasanjo's 3rd Term Bid - Orji Kalu



Former Abia state governor, Orji Uzor Kalu says himself, Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu and the late former governor of Niger state, late Engineer Abdulkadir Kure were instrumental to the scuttling of the third term bid by former president Olusegun Obasanjo.

The former governor said the late Kure would be remembered for that critical role in frustrating the attempt to alter the constitution and pave way for reemergence of Obasanjo.


He spoke on Wednesday in Minna shortly after he paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Engineer Kure.

"Without that fight against third term, there wouldn't have been President Goodluck Jonathan, there wouldn't have been President Mohammadu Buhari today. Kure was our arrow head in killing third term and he will be remembered for that role that we all played", he said.
