Former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, is of the opinion that it is necessary for politicians and civil servants in Nigeria to go to prison.
Kalu, a presidential aspirant and lawmaker representing Abia-North senatorial district, described the prison as a learning facility.
He disclosed this during his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today where he responded to questions bordering on corruption allegations against him.
“I am not guilty, I am as free as anything.
“They put me in prison to the glory of God and Nigerian people should thank them because I am better off today being there.
“I lost nothing, I went there to learn, it was a learning institution, and every politician and every civil servant needs to go there and learn; they will have another perspective of life.”
