Aso Rock 2023: Marginalization of the South self-afflicted where S’South, S’West fail to support S’East for the Nigerian presidency, says Senator Kalu

Kalu said, “It is my desire and intention to run for the Presidency of Nigeria. I am committed to this pursuit, but I can’t make an official declaration to this regard without the full support of other regions. Everywhere in the world, politics is situational and that of Nigeria is exceptionally situational.

As aspirants contesting the APC primaries began collecting their nomination forms on Tuesday, the senator representing Abia North and former Governor of the State, Orji Kalu, has criticised presidential aspirants from the South-West and the South-South over their refusal to step down for their counterparts from the South-East.

As aspirants contesting the APC primaries began collecting their nomination forms on Tuesday, the senator representing Abia North and former Governor of the State, Orji Kalu, has criticised presidential aspirants from the South-West and the South-South over their refusal to step down for their counterparts from the South-East.

Kalu, who is also a presidential aspirant, also took a swipe at the All Progressives Congress and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party for failing to zone the Presidency specifically to the South-East which had yet to produce a president of the country.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, as reported by the Punch Newspaper and titled ‘2023 Presidency: The Fairness I Know,’ Kalu stated that it would be hypocritical of those in the South-West and the South-South who criticise the North, especially in the PDP, for not conceding the ticket to the South, if the same people would not concede the position to the South-East.

Kalu said, “It is my desire and intention to run for the Presidency of Nigeria. I am committed to this pursuit, but I can’t make an official declaration to this regard without the full support of other regions.  Everywhere in the world, politics is situational and that of Nigeria is exceptionally situational.

“In the absence of this zoning, I shall return to the Senate and stay away from the presidential contest. The reality is that the North is more advantageous to win elections in this democratic setting.”
