Kalu Condemns Killing Of Deborah, Calls For Prosecution Of Those Behind Her Death

The Senate Chief Whip and former governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has come out to publicly state why he has chosen to jettison his presidential ambition to support the presidential ambition of his colleague, the Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan.

Lawan who is contesting for the Presidential seat under the plaftorm of the All Progressives Congress (APC) bought his presidential expressions of interest form on Monday.

Senator Kalu in the midst of wide condemnation, especially among the Southeast and few of his supporters, for dropping his presidential ambition to support Lawan, said that he chose to support Lawan when it became clear that the party was not going to zone their presidential seat to the Southeast.

Senator who believed that Lawan’s emergence as the Presidential flagbearer of the APC would be the closest to the equity, fairness and Justice said “I congratulate my friend, former roommate and boss, Senator Ahmad Lawan as he picks form to run for President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under our great party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

“I am most glad because he is from the North East, the only zone alongside South East that is yet to produce President of Nigeria.

“I have always maintained an unambiguous stand that for justice, equity and fairness in our country, the next president of Nigeria after President Muhammadu Buhari should come from the South East or the North East.

“I have also told Nigerians that I would only run for president if the two major political parties (APC and PDP) zone their tickets to the South East.

“That is why I was disappointed with our southern brothers who are talking about fairness and equity but has zero tolerance for the same fairness and equity in the South .

“In the absence of a South Easterner being president of Nigeria in 2023, I have my full support for a North Easterner.

“This is because it would be the closest to the equity, fairness and Justice everyone is talking about. It further means that the justice is on its way to the South East.

“I have also picked ticket to run for Abia North Senatorial zone and to complete the good work I started in Abia North.
