Tinubu Probably Wants Kalu To Step Down For Him
Well...it's no longer news that Mr Tinubu and Mr Kalu are both gunning for Nigeria's presidency. It's also not news that the former met with the latter on the same subject matter. So why would Tinubu want Kalu to step down for him? I can hazard a guess/guesses.
1) The north certain have made it clear that they're backing Kalu for presidency. The signs are there: brought him out of prison for presidency. The antecedence is there - Obasanjo.
2) Tinubu knows that with Kalu and the backing of the military generals that made Kalu a billionaire, prior to the days of PDP, that he stood no chance in a contest. He's got the dough but not the clout, like the generals that made Obasanjo president.
3) Tinubu knows that the clock is ticking... His time must be now or never. He isn't getting any younger na. Kalu can still contest in 8 years but certainly not Tinubu. Even now, the electorate are already saying that he's too old.
4) He needs the support of the south, especially Igbo. And hoped that Kalu would join his train and boost his popularity considering his 2015 misadventure that has made him a stench in the nostrils of all southerners in the East and South when he betrayed a southern president - Jonathan.
In a nutshell, Tinubu knows when the odds are against him.
