2023: Nigerians Not Yet Ready For Igbo Presidency – Orji Uzor Kalu

Former Governor of Abia state and current Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu has said that Nigerians are not yet ready for a President from the South-East region of the country.

According to the former Governor this is not the best time for Igbos to become president.

Meanwhile, in 2022, Kalu said it was long overdue for the south-east to produce a president.
It’s overdue for an Igboman to become a Nigerian president, I believe the south-east should produce the next president and it’s going to happen,” he had said in the build-up to the presidential primaries of the APC at the time.

However speaking on Wednesday, during an interview on Channels Television Kalu said;

This is not the best outing for us. For you to be president of Nigeria, you need other regions. I’m not sure that Nigerians are yet ready for a president of Igbo extraction,

“We have five other regions to be able to come up with votes. We do politics with emotions. I want Igbos to stop doing politics with emotions. I want them to do practical politics that will be able to drive Nigerians if we want to be in the community of the nation. We need to read the temperature of other regions.”
