Former Abia State governor, (Dr.) Orji Uzoh Kalu, undoubtedly, is a man of clout.

As a politician, he is widely acknowledged to have positively impacted his society. As a businessman, his industry is also a lesson for many. He is one of the few Nigerians who enjoy global recognition.

Though the foregoing may not be news, what you will rather find more interesting is the fact that the former governor has just recently secured a nod for his Slok Airline to resume business operation by the aviation authorities.

However, it was gathered that Orji is seeking compensation for what he described as ‘‘shutting down a thriving business by the government for political reasons.’’ He is now in court seeking a N35billion compensation.

It was also gathered that because the business is dear to his heart, he is quietly putting in place structures for the kick-off, irrespective of where the pendulum of the court ruling swings.

The Chief Olusegun Obasanjo-led Federal Government had announced the revocation of Slok Air’s operating licence on March 12, 2004, just a year after the airline was licensed, without any tangible reason for the action
