2023: Aspirants Not From South-East Greedy – Orji Kalu

The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Kalu, has said the presidential aspirants from the South-West and North are greedy.

According to him, they shouldn’t be contesting for President when the South-East is yet to produce a President in Nigeria.

Kalu said this on Monday when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.

He said, “If they have a conscience, they will not run. But they have no conscience. Obasanjo was President for eight years, (Prof Yemi) Osinbajo was (will be) Vice-President for eight years, but south-easterners have never got a president for one year. How would you sleep if you were in my position? The gods of the land are asking questions in Igboland. Where are these people? They are asking, ‘Why will these people come again?’

When asked about his response to the gods, the lawmaker said, “The answer is that they are greedy. They should stop being greedy. And that is what is killing Nigeria.”
