Orji Kalu: Tinubu has done well in certain areas — but people are hungry

Orji Kalu, senator representing Abia north, says President Bola Tinubu has done well in certain areas of the economy.

He added that the president needs to do more in other areas because citizens are starving.

Speaking with Channels Television, Kalu said the country needs fiscal policies that would lead to the production of more food.

“I’m sure the president has done well in some areas and he also needs to improve in many other areas. I’m a very practical person, I fear nobody and I support the truth,” he said.


“President Tinubu has done so well in some areas, and in some other areas of feeding our people, people are hungry so I cannot say.

“He has done well in economic policy, monetary policy. Very good.

“But in fiscal policies we haven’t grown more food. I want us to grow more food.”


The former governor said the proposed N62,000 minimum wage would not address the ongoing inflation.

“I’m a proponent that local governments should be getting their money fully,” he added.

“I also believe that N62,000 cannot do anything. N90,000… and why I’m proposing N90,000 is very simple. We have not increased the minimum wage in five years.

“I’m a practical person. The civil servants need good treatment.”
