I don’t believe in Igbo Presidency, those declaring now are not serious – Orji Kalu
Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has said that he does not believe in Igbo Presidency, but believes in Nigerian President of Igbo extraction, adding that those declaring interest now to occupy Aso Rock come 2023 are not serious.
Kau stated this while answering questions from Journalists on Wednesday in Abuja.
The former Abia State governor said, “Well they are pushing but they are not serious, a serious minded person will like to be fair to Nigeria, fair to the society and to be fair to the atmosphere, because the party is not owned by me or you the media.
“This party is owned by Nigerians and the APC members . It is only APC that can decide like at the forth coming convention where the Presidential ticket will be zoned to. If they zone it to the south east I have everything it takes to make a good President.”
The Chief Whip of the Senate, who said he doesn’t believes in Igbo Presidency but Nigerian President of Igbo extraction, added that it is the turn of the Igbos to produce the next Nigerian President.
“I don’t believe, I believe in Nigerian President of Igbo extraction.”
Kalu said, “It is over due, I believe that we should produce the next President and it is going to happen. I don’t need to push, I have to push along with the other regions.
Responding to question if he informed President Muhammadu Buhari of intention to contest for the Presidency, he said, “Did the party zone the 2023 presidency to the South West, I told you before that when the party zones it officially to the south. I told you the only two zones that have not tasted the presidency are the south east and the Northeast, once they zone it to anyone of them I have the capacity and the capability I will roll and I will rock like a hurricane.”
