- Senator Orji Kalu has been in the news following a declaration by a clergyman which linked the politician to the presidency
- The former governor explained why he does not believe in visions
- The lawmaker justified the calls for a Nigerian president from Igbo extraction
Senator Orji Kalu has dismissed a prophecy from a clergyman suggesting that the former governor (Kalu) would emerge as Buhari's successor in 2023.
Kalu also stated that he currently has no ambition to become president, but will gladly lead Nigeria if given the opportunity to do so.
“I am a Catholic. In the Catholic church, we don’t see visions. Well, if visions are being seen, and people say this and that, if it is the will of God that I will become president, why not? I am very capable mentally and otherwise to do whatever Nigerian people want me to do but not through prophecy.’’
When asked about his views on the calls for a southeast president from Igbo extraction, the lawmaker said the idea was just because the region has not produced a Nigerian president before.
Meanwhile, the apex Igbo socio-political organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo (worldwide), has expressed optimism that the southeast would get the presidency in 2023.
He said their differences and divergent views would not rob the Igbo of the presidency in 2023.
According to the wife of Ekiti state governor, women have all it takes to rule the country, however, those controlling power and leadership positions won’t allow this to be realised.
