Orji Kalu, former Governor of Abia State, has urged Nigerians to support Igbos to produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain said such a mandate cannot be achieved by people of the South East alone, hence the call for all Nigerians to support the push.
He said this while addressing journalists in Ile-Ife, Osun State, after his peace and advocacy visit to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
According to Kalu, “We can’t do it alone. Late Chief MKO Abiola came to my mother’s house in Abia many years ago seeking political support.
“While discussing with my mother, MKO said no one could clap with one hand. I will also adopt that adage. We Igbo can’t do it alone. The rest of the country should assist us to realise this ambition.”
The former governor also observed that Buhari had demonstrated his love for Nigeria, stressing that the president, “is not corrupt.”
Kalu also hinted that Buhari will return in 2019.
“I know Buhari very well. He is not corrupt. He does not own property anywhere. Some people should not just put the country in crisis. Whatever they may have in plan, Buhari will return in 2019,” he said.
