The former Senate Chief Whip and former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has cautioned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over recent high-profile defections to the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).
In a statement, Kalu expressed his concern about the defection of APC members, particularly in the country’s Nort-West geo-political zone.
He urged the ruling party to either zone the presidency to the northeast or southeast.
“The silent majority who have a working conscience could protest this injustice by supporting Engr. Rabiu Kwankwaso to clinch the presidential seat in 2023 if our party.
“The APC and the opposition PDP field their candidates from any other zone aside South East or North East. This is because when the purpose is not known, abuse becomes inevitable,” he said.
According to Kalu this is the time to unite and rally around a zone that has not produced the nation’s president since the rotation convention era began in 1999.
