2023: Zone Presidential ticket to Southeast – Orji Kalu urge APC

The Chief Whip of the Senate and the former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, has urged the All Progressives Congress, APC, to zone the presidential ticket to the southeast ahead of the party National Convention.

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.
