It seems an alliance between Senator Orji Uzor Kalu and Former Lagos State Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is brewing amidst the upcoming 2023 Presidential election. The two prominent Nigerian politicians were reported to have met at Senator Orji Uzor Kalu’ s residence in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The meeting between the two former Nigerian Governors is coming as both Orji Kalu and Bola Tinubu are rumored to be nursing Presidential ambitions although none of them have declared their intentions yet. Bola Ahmed Tinubu later disclosed the discussion of the closed door meeting going on to state to newsmen that, ” We discussed the way forward for the country and this country is important and greater than any one’ s personal ambition. We have been together and concerned about the stability, progress, development and security of the country. The future of our youth is more critically important than selfish and personal intentions” .
Senator Orji Kalu had been in the Nigeria news space recently as he called his Igbo tribesmen to support President Muhammadu Buhari stating that, ” Abia north is the senatorial district that gave the president the highest votes both in the south- south and south- east, we are number one and nobody is challenging us. So, when people say we don’ t like Buhari we are not part of it; we have always been in good times with him. We gave him doctorate degree in our university in 2003 (Abia State University) and we gave him chieftaincy title in Igbere (Orji Kalu’ s home town} in 2004″
” We are excited to have other people in our area, so Nigerian politicians should remove hatred. I encourage the Igbos to work with President Buhari to find a way to make amends and remove sentiments and work with the president so that in the remaining two years he can do more things for us before he leaves office” .
