2023: Orji Kalu moves closer to presidency after securing major endorsement

Meanwhile, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu had been endorsed for the 2023 presidential race.

Kalu on Monday, December 6, 2021, secured the endorsement of a pro-democracy group under the aegis of Political Movement Alliance (PMA).

Akinpelumi Bode, the national secretary of PMA said that the leadership of the group, made up of 36 state coordinators, wholeheartedly endorsed Orji to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a communiqué issued after the group’s monthly convention in Abuja, Bode noted that the former governor is a de-tribalised politician, a potential candidate, and an accomplished business entrepreneur.

According to him, the group strongly believed that the presidential power should shift to the southeast as Igbos have stood behind several leaders from different tribes in times past.
