Northern, South-West, South-South presidential aspirants greedy, selfish – Orji Kalu

A former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, has taken a swipe at presidential aspirants from the North, South-West and the South-South, describing them as selfish and greedy.

He expressed his reservations on Monday while featuring on Politics Today, a current affairs programme on Channels Television.

He also criticised former President Olusegun Obasanjo and an elder statesman, leader of the Pan Niger Delta Forum, Chief Edwin Clark, for failing to push for an Igbo president.

Kalu said since there were indications that aspirants from the South-East were not favoured in the presidential race, he would rather support the ambition of the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, who is from Yobe State in the North-East, a geopolitical zone that had also not produced a president in the North.
