The Senate Chief Whip, Sen. Orji Kalu has said that the people of South-East would be the most beneficiary of Bola Tinubu`s presidency if he wins in 2023.
Kalu said this in Abuja on Tuesday while addressing newsmen.
He impinged his assertion on how strategic the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate is.
“Let me be honest with you, we were governors together, he is a strategist, he will make the presidency benefit the Igbos.
“The Igbo people are going to be the biggest beneficiary of Tinubu’s presidency and you will see it. Hold me responsible”, he said.
He opined that he was not against a president of Igbo extraction, establishing that becoming Nigeria’s president was not a regional issue.
Kalu said “I have no problem with an Ibo man becoming president, but we have to do it with other Nigerians.
“If you don’t do it with other Nigerians, it’s not going to work, no matter how popular you are, this is president of Nigeria not the president of Igbo land.
“Mind you, I am an Ibo man to the core, I am also a Nigerian to the core and nobody can take that away from me.
“If anyone is to be nominated as president of Igbo extraction, I could have been the one, but I see it not feasible yet,“he said.
