Former Abia State Governor and Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has stated that he will contest the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential ticket with former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, if the party zones it to the South.
In an interview on Tuesday, Kalu stated that, while he has nothing against Tinubu's ambition, he believes that the South East is ready for the presidency and that it should be the region's turn to produce the next President, who should be him.
Kalu believes he has what it takes to compete with Tinubu "grit for grit and campaign for campaign" for the APC ticket in 2023.
Tinubu revealed his intention to run for president on Monday.
Tinubu had visited Kalu in his Villa residence in November, where he informed the federal lawmaker of his Presidential ambitions.
