Eventually, like all man-made deities, Orji Uzor Kalu stopped resembling a ‘god’ or something like one; he is losing worth like the last fading smile of a cosmic Cheshire cat.
Yes, the rich take their pleasures sadly, after the fashion of whatever seems to be trendy. Hence it is not in habit but in novelty and the clichéd that many a billionaire often pursues and acquires vainglory and pleasure.
But what manner of vaingloriousness would drive Orji Kalu to engage in a subtle yet aggressive jostle with billionaire oil magnate, Femi Otedola, for the limelight? What shade and colouration of vanity would drive him to engage in intense competition with Otedola and Tony Elumelu for social correctness and youth appeal?
Perhaps the type that drives the proverbial old woman to channel and relive the pleasure of youth and her famished beauty in grandiose and evanescent dreams. As you read, Orji is engaged in a feral and frantic hustle to outdo the trio of Otedola, Dangote and Elumelu in the now fashionable quest for the juiciest portion of the spotlight.
Yes, weeks after a video of the Chairman of Forte Oil, Femi Otedola, taking a bus trip in the city of London went viral online, former Abia State governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, has equally toed the same path by uploading a short video on Instagram showing him in a London public bus .
In what looked like a scripted shot, Kalu was seen to be chatting with a guy he named Chika, whom he asked that his followers should tag if they knew him. Unlike Otedola’s video, Kalu posted a video with a muted sound. While Otedola explained that he took the bus on his way to see his former teacher at Wandsworth in London; Kalu did not also say why he embarked on his journey that appeared to be an act of playing to the gallery.
Less than an hour after Otedola, who is notable for his simplicity, uploaded his video, the blogosphere went agog, as it attracts wide coverage from blogs and attendant commentaries that run for days. In Kalu’s case, he has only been able to attract 122 views more than 24 hours after uploading.
One wonders what Kalu’s intention was with his copycat exercise. Now that Kalu has found a mentor in the business mogul, Otedola, are we to expect him to follow up with another video in the same fashion Otedola boarded a Lagos popular commercial bus, Molue, from Sango to Agege? Otedola shared the video of his ride with his followers on Wednesday.
The video, which generated 92,064 views within two hours, shows him sitting in the bus as a fellow passenger standing next to him, a female, advertises a product. He saunters down, Lagos style, when he gets to his destination. Kalu may have to follow suit and take a commercial bus in Aba to know how warmly he would be received by the people whom he was reported to have fleeced of their commonwealth for which he has been standing trial he has been struggling to exculpate himself from.

Zidora Aid Foundation empowers widows, orphans with foodstuff, free healthcare
Zidora Aid foundation (ZAF) has taken its charity works to a higher level with the recent empowerment programme organized for widows and orphans in Ukpor, Anambra State.
Worried by the hardship faced by widows and orphans in the society, Zidora Aid Foundation (ZAF) has empowered widows and orphans in some inner city communities in Lagos with free medical treatment and foodstuff for thousands of widows and orphans. The founder, Zidora Aid Foundation, Dr. Arinze Madueke who turned 34 years old a couple of days ago, noted that the foundation was set out to empower women, especially widows in Nigeria.
The visibly excited medical doctor cum philanthropist explained that apart from empowering the widows and orphans with foodstuff and free medical care, there is also skill acquisition programme designed teach the women how to fish and be independent on their own. “We are working on a training programme on how to teach them how to make liquid soap, how to design clothes, how to make small chops and many other things.
Beyond skill acquisition, money and food items that the foundation gave to the widows, the founder said the foundation also ensured that nurses and doctors are available to treat any who are sick. “It may be a challenging for them to have access to medical care due to financial constraints, hence the reason we have decided to bring along the medical doctors and nurses who will help to diagnose them and give medications as required. As for critical cases, a referral letter would be given to such patients to the nearest government health facilities where they would be treated.” Madueke added.
On the agenda of the Zidora Aid Foundation, Dr. Madueke disclosed that ZAF is a Non-Governmental Organization that has an agenda geared towards women empowerment, the less privileged children in our society in the form of skills acquisition, and financial assistance; health intervention; basic education for kids of the underprivileged in the society and nutrition. He said, “We go round Nigeria to help the underprivileged widow in the society and this we have been doing over the years in Lagos.
Unlike other NGO’s who solicit help and support from government, foreign donors and corporate organizations, Zidora aid foundation is funded solely from proceeds of the Zidora Group of Companies.
The charming and handsome philanthropist further said, “To change our society and make this world a better place we MUST love, we MUST give and we MUST share no matter how small”
In a bid to impacting more people and give back to the society, the founder, Zidora Aid Foundation, Dr. Madueke has hinted on opening a branch of the foundation in his home town, Ukpor in Anambra State. The move which he said is in line with the popular saying “Charity begins at home”.
The Anambra branch will be responsible for charity works in the eastern part of Nigeria and the middle belt region of the country.
