Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Kalu, has advised the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, not to take for granted the recent high profile defections to the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP.
He said the defections are taking place, especially in the North-West geo-political zone ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Orji Kalu, a former governor of Abia State, made this known in a post on Facebook on Friday.
He wrote, “I’m using this opportunity to reiterate my earlier position that the presidency should go North-East if it can’t be conceded to the South-East for equity and fairness.
“The silent majority who have a working conscience could protest this injustice by supporting Engr. Rabiu Kwankwaso to clinch the presidential seat in 2023 if our party, the APC and the opposition PDP field their candidates from any other zone aside South East or North East.
“This is because when purpose is not known, abuse becomes inevitable.
“It is time to unite and rally round a zone that has not produced the nation’s president since the rotation convention dispensation that began in 1999.”
