The former Governor of Abia state and Chief Whip of the Senate, Sen. Orji Kalu has stated that he will consider contesting for the 2023 presidency if the All Progressives Congress (APC) zones its presidential ticket to the South-East region.
He made this statement while addressing reporters when he arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Tuesday, January 11, following the Christmas and New Year break, the former Governor noted that he has not fully made up his mind to contest.
“I want to continue to thank people who are putting up my posters all over Nigeria, I have not made up my mind whether to vie for president or not.
“But if the opportunity is given to the South-East, I will think again to see if there is the room because the party has not said where they are zoning the president to.
“But I know the party will bring a president who will work for the unity of the country which is more important.”
