Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu

Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu is an international entrepreneur and a former governor of Abia State. A presidential candidate in 2007, Dr. Kalu is also the chairperson of SLOK Holding, a major oil and gas shipper between Nigeria and China, and the Sun, Nigeria's largest newspaper. An adamant believer in the need to facilitate greater unity in Nigeria, Dr. Kalu also heads the Njiko Igbo movement, a non-partisan and apolitical initiative that seeks to secure the presidential seat for a Nigerian citizen of Igbo origin. Dr. Kalu asserts that the plight of the Igbo people, who to this day remain ostracized due to their perceived role in the Biafran conflict, is indicative of the plight of all Nigerian people to ensure their basic human rights.
