Presidency not a regional contest- Kalu tells Obi


Former Governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor-Kalu on Tuesday disclosed that the race for Presidency in 2023 should not be reduced to regional cont

Kalu while briefing journalists in jettison the Presidential candidate of his APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to root for the candidate of Labour Party(LP), Peter Obi simply because he(Obi) is from the same region as him.

Kalu who currently represents Abia North said he holds nothing personal against Obi running for Presidency but as a loyal member of APC he cannot work against the interest of his party and that of his close allies and friends in Tinubu and his university roommate, Kashim Shettima.

Kalu who expressed satisfaction about Tinubu’s wide consultations in the Southeast, called on Igbos to wait their turn when the rest of the country will agree to zone Presidency to the region. But for now, he called on them to rally massively behind Tinubu; vouching that he(Tinubu) will protect the interest of Igbos and that they will be the best beneficiaries of his Presidency.

Kalu admitted that some lawmakers were nursing the idea of Impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari before the Senate went on recess to protest against mounting insecurity in the country but, he said no impeachment plot either against Buhari or Lawan will sail through in the Senate.
