The former governor of the Abia state and Chief Whip of the 9th Senate, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu says Bola Tinubu’s presidency will be more beneficial to the Igbo people.

Kalu said this in Abuja on Tuesday while addressing journalist. He said, “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. Hold me responsible.

He stated that he was not against a president of Igbo extraction, adding that becoming Nigeria’s president was not a regional issue.

“I have no problem with the Igbo man being president, but we have to do it with other Nigerians. If we don’t do it with other Nigerians, it will not work, no matter how popular you are. It’s the president of Nigeria, not the president of Igbo land.

“I’m an Igbo man to the core. I’m also a Nigerian to the core. If anyone from the southeast would have been nominated for the presidency, I would have been the one, so it’s a party business. I have no grudges against anybody who is running.

“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.

He continued “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.

Reconsidering the decisions of the senators to impeach the president, Orji Kalu said nobody is talking about impeachment.

He added, “Not on this floor. President Buhari has done well in some areas and failed in some areas. The impeachment threat is mere gossip, it is not possible.”
