In a birthday message to the Senate Chief Whip on Wednesday, Chief Dan Okeke a businessman and philanthropist noted that Kalu has made himself an accepted brand across the country as a result of his detribalised and pan-Nigerian disposition.

He said, “Sen. Kalu is an exemplary leader who has not only contributed his quota in entrenching a more workable Abia but uses every opportunity to canvas for equal opportunity and inclusion for the South East region.
“A true patriot, he has built bridges of love, peace and unity which has swelled his popularity across the country’s regional and ethnic divide.
“Undoubtedly, being a blessing to his generation, God is preparing him for a bigger task in our national service. I wish him good health and divine wisdom”.
