Nigerian senator and former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu has taken to his official Facebook page to lament the level at which the youths insult elders in the country following the comments that APC will lose 2023 as Manchester United lost to Brentford.
“For the first time in 84 years Manchester United suffered a heavy defeat to Brentford,” the Senate Chief Whip wrote on Facebook after Man United’s 4-0 loss to Brentford on Saturday.
“Definitely not a good time for Man U and its fans, I hope they get back on track and on time as one can only imagine what will happen when they face Liverpool next week.”
Facebook users stormed the comment section to mock the APC chieftain, saying his party will be defeated like Manchester United in the 2023 presidential election.
In his reaction to the comments he deemed to be insult, the former Abia State governor said, “Instead of Nigerian youths to face what the business is all about, they are facing what is not the business.
“When we talk Man City, they should reply to the club not to be abusing a statesman like me that this is how my party will end and all that.
“We should learn. You don’t insult your elders and become successful. I don’t want to curse anybody in Nigeria because I didn’t behave like this as a youth.
“When I was 25, I was already very successful so if I see youths who should be chatting with a statesman like me that they have lots of ideas, are now joking with it. It is not fair on me.”
