In another development, The Chief Whip of the 9th Senate Senator Orji Uzor Kalu while addressing newsmen at the National Assembly Complex in Abuja on Tuesday said the presidency is not a regional issue and could only be won with the support of other geo-political zones.

The Senator stated that for an Igbo man to emerge as President they have to work with other Nigerians.

According to Kalu, no matter how popular the candidate is, if the person does not work with others it’s not going to work.

 

The Elections Are Along The Party Line And Not Along The Tribal Line

He said even though as an Igbo man he was not nominated for the presidency, he does not hold grudges against anybody who is running.

 

The lawmaker added that he would support the presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu who is the candidate of the APC, a party to which he also belongs. Senator Orji Uzor Kalu said elections are along the party line and not along the tribal line, so he has to support Tinubu.

 

Furthermore, He added that For him, the Igbos will wait for another time and see how all Nigerians will agree to zone the presidency to the Igboland. But for now, our presidential candidate is Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

That Bola Tinubu is a strategic leader, he will make his presidency beneficial to the Igbo. The Igbo will be the biggest beneficiaries of Tinubu’s presidency.
