The people of South-East would benefit most from Bola Tinubu’s presidency, according to Senator Orji Kalu, Chief Whip of the Senate, if he is elected in 2023.
Orji Kalu stated this while speaking to journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, since the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate was a strategist.
He added that becoming president of Nigeria was not a regional matter and that he was not against a leader of Igbo descent.
“Let me be honest with you, we were governors together, he is a strategist, he will make the presidency benefit the Igbos.
“The Igbo people are going to be the biggest beneficiary of Tinubu’s presidency and you will see it.”, He further said.
Everyone who supported Tinubu in the primaries was asked to unite and carry the party by Kalu.
This is a party business, I have no business of whoever is running, for me it is not personal, but it is political and a party affair.
Kalu added by saying, “It is about a party winning election, I have chosen to be in APC so why should I vote against Bola Tinubu, it is madness and I am not going to do it.
“It is the party you belong to that you will deliver, we will wait for another time to see how Nigerians will agree to zone the presidency to the east.
“But for now our presidential candidate is Bola Ahmed Tinubu and I will vote for him,“he said.
He also claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari was not under any imminent threat of being impeached by opposition senators.
