In a heartwarming gesture, the House of Representatives has felicitated the Deputy Speaker, Rep. Benjamin Okezie Kalu, on the occasion of his birthday anniversary.

The statement issued by House Spokesman Rep. Akin Rotimi, Jr., on Saturday hailed Kalu as a leader and a parliamentarian of outstanding merit.

Speaking of Kalu’s stewardship, Rotimi noted that “Kalu has distinguished himself in public service over the last two decades. From his early days in politics, serving as Council Chairman of Bende Local Government Area of Abia State, through his years in the Abia State Executive Council, he has consistently demonstrated a deep passion for service.

“Rt. Hon. Kalu’s appointment as Spokesman of the Nigeria House of Representatives in the 9th Assembly left a commendable legacy for the Green Chamber, significantly improving its reputation and social license to function as the people’s house. This legacy has continued to resonate in the current 10th Assembly, setting a standard for transparency and accountability in parliamentary affairs.

“In his nearly one year in office as Deputy Speaker, Rt. Hon. Kalu’s inspiring leadership and collaboration with Speaker Abbas Tajudeen as Presiding Officers of the Green Chamber have been truly remarkable. His unique style of dialogue, advocacy, participation, and inclusivity, as Chairman of the House Committee on Constitution Review, further underscores his unwavering commitment to high-impact leadership.”

Speaker Tajudeen Abbas in his tribute to Kalu, lauded his unwavering support and shared vision for the House and the nation.

He said “Rt. Hon. Benjamin Okezie Kalu is one Nigerian who deserves to be celebrated for his commitment, dedication, and zeal to nation-building. Since our emergence as Speaker and Deputy respectively on June 13, 2023, Rt. Hon. Kalu has been a worthy partner. He has been giving me all the necessary support in piloting the affairs of the House. I am quite thrilled by his good qualities. His contributions are worthy of commendation. He is an ally who shares my vision for the 10th House and the nation as a whole,”

Acknowledging Kalu’s effort as a beacon of peace and development in the South-East region through the Peace in the South East Project (PISE-P) Abbas pointed out  that “This strategic effort, as seen by all, is restoring the region to its rich cultural heritage, vibrant communities, and enterprising people.”

As he celebrates this milestone year, marking his first birthday in the exalted office of Deputy Speaker, we extend hearty cheers and prayers for his longevity, greater wisdom, and uncommon strength.”
