We feel it’s the turn of the zone this time.”

He will surely make Nigerians proud considering his managerial experience, energetic, focused, ambitious, doggedness, confidence, stability and exemplary leadership style to impact positively on the lives of ordinary Nigerians”
“Kalu has performed superbly as a Senator, businessman and philanthropist. He is the best man to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023. We are here to appeal to you to support him and support a Nigerian President from the South East geo-political zone. He is promise keeper and I believe Senator Orji Uzor Kalu won’t disappoint you when he emerge as the President of the federal republic of Nigeria.”
Responding on behalf of the Indigenes, Hon. Nuhu Ahmed commended the Abia North stakeholders for finding “worthy of consulting” and applauded the leadership capacity of the Senate Chief Whip.
According to him, Senator Kalu has done well as a pan Nigerian and lover of the unity of Nigeria, noting that the nation needed a unifier to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
“I know Orji Uzor Kalu too well right from when he was in the University of Maiduguri. He is a lover of Nigeria and manger of resources. We need a leader with the capacity to unite everyone. We need a unifier to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
