Kalu true to self ensured that he did not only secure a handshake with the Pontiff, but also kissed Papal hand. The most glaring was the picture in which he sat in a congregation or was it an assembly and stood out as the only black seated amongst the whites. A friend of mine squealed that Kalu must have ‘bribed’ the person who occupied that seat earlier in order to secure the posture in the photo shoot, opining he may have wanted to pretend that he was the only black person in the congregation.
There were so many other schools of thought over why he undertook the journey. A school of thought guessed that he must have gone there to solicit for prayers to get him out of the EFCC debacle or even seek the Pope’s prayer for the redemption of Nigeria. Another had it that after his alleged Okija outing, he may have gone for cleansing as a born-again. Yet another had it that it should not be ruled out that Kalu may come out with “OUK Seminary” or something of the sort.
But in all, many believe he did not go there for the fun of it. To me, I believe that Kalu went there on a good purpose. Only time will tell what his mission was.
