After the first leg of his check-up in Wiesbaden, Germany, following a major surgery in November, former Abia State Governor, Dr. Orji Kalu alongside his wife, Ifunanya and children, returned to Abuja on Saturday.
Drum Africa News learnt he arrived on Lufthansa airline alongside family members, and was seen exchanging pleasantries with political associates, friends and airport officials, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.
The former governor, who declined to grant an extensive interview with journalists at the airport, applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for the newly commissioned international terminal at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja.
Speaking further, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Abia North senatorial zone expressed appreciation to Nigerians for the show of love and support during his medical vacation abroad.
