2023 presidency: Orji Kalu Congratulates Atiku, Cautions APC About Zoning To South.
In a bid to felicitate with the PDP presidential candidate who won primary election with a total vote 371, former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor has praised Atiku for riding to victory, after a rigorous, meticulous election.
In a communique he wrote via his Facebook page, he expressed himself and also admonished APC to zone her Presidential ticket to North East as well.
Congratulations to the PDP for electing a North Easterner . Nigerians must have seen what I saw yesterday . For our party the APC , it is no longer feasible to talk about Southern candidate except the APC want to go on political retirement.
I urge the National Chairman of the party and the entire NWC to stamp their feet and zone APC presidential ticket to the North East .
President Muhammad Buhari has a right to choose his successor and I call on him to pick Senator Ahmad Lawan as his successor. In every democratic setting, presidents and Governors support and pick their successors . I call on President Buhari to pick a successor from North East and that will be the equity the South East need. With North East , the cycle will be closest to completion of regions producing president of Nigeria.
By now , all APC aspirants should drop their ambition and support a North Easterner . Senator Ahmad Lawan is the destination.
Congratulations to North East as we look forward to a president of Nigeria from the North East .
Senator Orji Uzor Kalu
Chief Whip of the 9th Senate
