Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, former Abia State governor, has vowed that nothing will stop the Igbo from running for presidential post in Nigeria in 2023.
This is even as the Igbere born business mogul revealed that the South-East needs the presidency more than restructuring, insisting that only the National Assembly can carry out restructuring.
Speaking in an exclusive interview, Kalu, who is the All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for Abia North, said: “Well, the Igbo will contest in 2023; nothing will stop us and morality will take its stand.
“Nigerians will check whether it is morally right for Igbo to be in the polity of this union, or whether the polity is shakable that we are not part of it. Igbo will contest in 2023; anybody who is interested should contest. Whoever wins will be the president of Nigeria.’’
Explaining why the Igbo people need the presidency in 2023 more than restructuring, the former governor who noted that Nigerians should rather advocate for fiscal federalism, said:
“We (Igbo) need the presidency more than restructuring. The presidency is more important. If really there is fairness in Nigeria, I don’t see anything stopping an Igbo man being President in 2023. Igbo should take a shot at it, they should have it.
