Nigerian politician, Orji Uzor Kalu has slammed Nigerian youths after they mocked him following the Manchester United’s defeat.
The football club was beaten 4-0 by Brentford on Saturday, August 14.
Following Man United’s loss, the Senator took to Facebook to lament, saying
“for the first time in 84 years Manchester United suffered a heavy defeat to Brentford.
“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.
responding, the former governor of Abia State slammed the commenters and told them that no one who insults elders can be successful in life.
Later on he posted a video on his Facebook page to address the youths.
He revealed that he was very successful at 25, before many of those insulting him were born.
Further more, He also added that he expected the youths to approach with great ideas, not insults.
“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.”
