2023: ORJI KALU REVEALS WHY HE CAN NOT ATTACK TINUBU
As politicians begin to adopt strategies of winning election in 2023, the Senate Chief Whip, ORJI UZOR KALU says he would not fight or attack the National Leader of APC, ASIWAJU BOLA TINUBU because he (TINUBU) is his good friend, stressing that their friendship is deep-rooted.
The Senator disclosed this while exonerating himself from media reports insinuating that he attacked TINUBU in a recent interview, regretting some people are trying to twist his words to score cheap political goal.
He noted that he only said that he would contest for the party’s 2023 presidential ticket, if it zoned to the South.
A statement from his media office quits the former governor of Abia State as saying that: “I told Nigerians that I would contest against TINUBU, if the ticket is zoned to the South. APC is a democratic party that allows every qualified member to vote and be voted for. It is not owned or managed by an individual. If I said I was going to contest against TINUBU doesn’t mean I attacked him. I cannot attack him for any reason.
“It is said that few elements are trying to twist my statement to score cheap political goal. I am not distracted. My friendship with TINUBU is deep-rooted and I am not quarrelling with him. I am not against his ambition of becoming the president. It is the choice of the party to determine who becomes her presidential candidate”.
