The Founder Emerge Women Development initiative, Mrs Mary Ikoku, has congratulated the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Kalu, on his 53rd birthday celebration.

Ikoku who is the chairman Media and Publicity committee of the Peace In South East Project (PISE-P), lauded Kalu for his many years of selfless and quality contribution to nation building in a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday.
