The former Governor of Abia State and Chief -Whip of the Senate, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, on Tuesday quit the 2023 presidential race over the refusal of South-South and South-West aspirants to support the clamor for the South-East presidency.
The Senate Chief-Whip went ahead to slam the South-West and South-South 2023 presidential aspirants.
In a statement, Kalu expressed disgust and noted that it was better for him to return to the Senate in 2023.
Kalu, in a statement, said I thought they would think about the South-East. The amount of money being spent by these aspirants is alarming and they have forgotten that money alone can’t buy the presidency.
It has become a joke to an ordinary Nigerian who hears Southern Commentators and aspirants rooting for a Southern President on the premise of Fairness, Equity, and Justice.
How can you talk about these morals when you are not fair to your brothers?
“If there’s anything like” Fairness”, “Equity” and”Justice”, it should be the entire South pushing for a president of South-East extraction.
Anything less than this is “hypocritical”, Unjustifiable” and “inordinate”
“What moral justification does a Southerner who refused to be fair to his brothers have against a Northerner running for President?
This will be very insensitive, unreasonable, and disrespectful for any Southern man to criticize a presidential aspirant for the North, on the ground that the North has done eight years and power should return to the South.
” If the next president after President Muhammadu Buhari doesn’t come from the South-East, there would be nothing unfair and unjust if he or she comes from Daura”, Kalu said.
