- Uzor Kalu is not comfortable with the rift between Saraki and Tinubu
- The APC chieftain urged the two national leaders to sheathe their swords in the interest of Nigeria’s democracy
- Kalu who said he has known the duo for decades, promised to intervene in the rift
Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, former governor of Abia state and senator-elect, has promised to reconcile the rift between Senate president, Dr. Bukola Saraki, and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The former governor disclosed this in South Africa while fielding questions from journalists in Johannesburg during the endorsement of the African National Congress (ANC), The Sun reports.
Kalu urged the two national leaders to sheathe their swords in the interest of Nigeria’s nascent democracy.
“I am unhappy over the exchange of words between my dear brothers, Senate president, Dr. Bukola Saraki and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
“The duo of Saraki and Tinubu have contributed immensely to nation building in different capacities.
“Having known the duo of Saraki and Tinubu for decades, I am not comfortable with the media war. As a mutual friend to both parties, it is my responsibility to intervene in the rift for the sake of friendship," he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) sounded a note of warning to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu against "disparaging" the region's leaders, especially Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker Yakubu Dogara.
The group said Tinubu and the southwest should be grateful for taking all sorts of advantage in the Buhari government, “especially juicy appointments for his cronies from the southwest and skewing the bulk of lucrative Federal Government projects to his southwest region.”
