Bloody Betrayal As Senator Orji Uzor-Kalu Tells LP’s Peter Obi And The People Of The South-East That 2023 Is Not Their Turn To Be President Of Nigeria, Despite Waiting For Over 20 Years, Says They Should Be Patient And Keep Waiting, As It Is The Turn Of The South-West

The Chief Whip of the Senate and Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Orji Uzor-Kalu, has on Tuesday, called on the 2023 Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, and the entire people of the South-East region where he comes from, to keep waiting for their turn to become President of Nigeria, adding that, 2023 is unfortunately not their turn, Page 36 learnt.

Senator Uzor-Kalu spoke while briefing Reporters at the National Assembly Complex, in Abuja.

He said that the Presidency is not a regional issue, and can only be won with the support of other geopolitical zones.

He stated: “Presidency is not a regional issue. I asked the political parties to zone the Presidency to the South-East. When they did not do that, and since the Presidency is not a regional issue, I had to withdraw.

“I have no problem with the Igbo man being President, but we have to do it with other Nigerians. If we do not do it with other Nigerians, it is not going to work, no matter how popular you are. It is the President of Nigeria, not the President of Igboland.

“I am an Igbo man to the core. I am also a Nigerian to the core. If anyone from the South-East had been nominated for the Presidency, I would have been the one. So, it is a party business. I have no grudges against anybody who is running.”
