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

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.

Kalu spoke in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Tuesday.

The lawmaker thanked individuals and groups urging him to throw his hat into the ring as the next general elections draw near.

Kalu noted that the development meant the people found him worthy to deliver good governance to Nigeria.

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.
