In an interview with the press, Uzor Kalu who is currently the Senator representing Abia North Senatorial District, said he is the only former governor who is still using his first phone number for 24 years.

Kalu said he has been using the same MTN SIM card for 24 years, but MTN started operation in Nigeria in August of 2001.

Kalu believes he has made himself accessible to his people, despite using his 8 year term as Abia State Governor to impoverish the state.

Kalu was convicted by the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court on Thursday, 5 December 2019 and sentenced to 12 years in prison for N7.65 billion fraud. He was convicted for defrauding the government of Abia State where he was a governor for 8 years using his company, Slok Nigeria Limited.

Kalu who is the chairman of SLOK Holding and the Daily Sun and New Telegraph newspapers in Nigeria, was later acquitted and cleared of all charges after he joined the ruling All Progressives Congress.
