The Chief Whip of the Senate and former governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has open up following the decision of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, to contest the 2023 presidential election.
Senator Kalu who disclosed that he was ready to fight against Tinubu, for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC), insisted that the Southeast is ripe for the Presidency and that it should be the turn of the region to produce the next President.
Insisting that he was most qualified for the top job, Kalu added that he has all that it takes to match Tinubu grit for grit and campaign for campaign for the APC ticket in 2023 if the party zones the position to the South.
The former Lagos State governor on Monday declared his ambition to run for President in the upcoming general election in 2023.
Tinubu’s move some believe may have foreclosed the agitation in some quarters for the Southeast to produce Nigeria’s next president.
