Former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, believes it is necessary for politicians and civil servants in Nigeria to go to prison.
Kalu, a presidential aspirant and lawmaker representing Abia-North senatorial district, described the prison as a learning facility.
A Federal High Court in Lagos had sentenced Kalu to 12 years imprisonment in a judgement delivered in December 2019.
But the judgment was later nullified by a seven-man panel of the Supreme Court in a unanimous verdict in May 2020.
Declaring the conviction of the former governor null and void, the apex court had held that Justice Mohammed Idris was already a justice of the Court of Appeal as of the time he delivered the judgment sentencing Kalu.
