 Orji Kalu opens up on attacking Tinubu’s presidential ambition - 2023 ORJI-UZOR-KALU228588

Orji Uzor Kalu, the Senate Chief Whip, on Sunday distanced himself from reports alleging that he attacked Bola Tinubu, a 2023 presidential aspirant.

Kalu said his recent interview where he was reported to have said he would match Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, grit for grit was misconstrued.

In a statement he issued in Abuja, the Ex-Abia State Governor, said his comment was twisted to score cheap political goals, NAN reports.

According to Kalu, he is not quarrelling with Tinubu or against his presidential ambition.

Kalu said: "We can never attack Tinubu.

"I told Nigerian People that I will 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, it doesn't mean I attacked him. I cannot attack him for any reason.

"It is sad that few elements are trying to twist my statement to score cheap political goals. 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 the presidential candidate.”
