Orji Uzor Kalu canvases support for President Buhari


Former Abia State governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, says he would not support any presidential candidate in 2019 ‎other than President Muhammadu Buhari.

Kalu stated this while on a state visit to Jigawa. He told Governor Muhammed Abubakar he was touring the country to sensitize Nigerians on the need to allow Buhari remain president, come 2019.

He also criticised former President Olusegun Obasanjo over‎ the letter he wrote to President Buhari advising him not to seek reelection and said the former president lacked the moral right to decide who becomes what in Nigeria.

Kalu said Nigerians have the moral obligation to choose their leaders through the democratic process, advising them to go ahead and vote for Buhari as president.

He said voting for other people other than President Buhari would be giving an opening for the continued looting of the country’s treasury.
