  • 2023: Orji Kalu hints on running for President after Tinubu’s declaration

EKO HOT BLOG reports that hours after All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, Bola Tinubu, declared his 2023 presidential ambition, former Abia Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, also announced his intention to contest.

The Senate Chief Whip, however, stated that he would run if the APC zones its presidential ticket to the South-East.

On campaign posters bearing his image sighted in some cities, the former governor said the final decision would be made known in due course.

“I want to continue to thank people who are putting up my posters all over Nigeria. I have not made up my mind whether to vie for president or not.

“But if opportunity is given to the South-East, I will think again to see if there is room because the party has not said where they are zoning the president to”, Kalu added.

The Senator expressed confidence that the APC will produce a President who will work for the unity of the country.
