2023: Tinubu’s ambition cannot affect Igbo presidency – Orji Kalu

Ahead of the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Convention, the Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu, has urged the party to zone the presidency to the Southeast.

Kalu said as far as the party has concluded its zoning of the presidential ticket to the south, the southeast should take preference.

The former Governor of Abia State spoke while fielding questions from journalists in Abuja on Tuesday.

On the presidential ambition of the National Leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, the lawmaker said while he has nothing against the aspiration of Tinubu, he believed that the south-east is ripe for the presidency.

“I don’t see Tinubu’s ambition having any effect on the president of Nigeria coming from Igbos.

“We are talking based on how Nigeria should be, we are talking which people should believe in.

“No Igbo man since independence has been democratically elected as president,” he said.
