Senator Orji Kalu, the Senate Chief Whip, has stated that he cannot attack APC National Leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu because of their personal connection.

This was Kalu’s way of clearing his name from media claims that he insulted Tinubu when he claimed in an interview that the APC chieftain would face him for the party’s 2023 presidential ticket, should he be given a seat in the South.

The former governor of Abia State, through his media office, said, “I told Nigerians that I would contest against Tinubu if the ticket is zoned to the South. APC is a democratic party that allows every qualified member to vote and be voted for. It is not owned or managed by an individual. If I said I was going to contest against Tinubu doesn’t mean I attacked him. I cannot attack him for any reason.

“It is said that few elements are trying to twist my statement to score cheap political goal. I am not distracted. My friendship with Tinubu is deep-rooted and I am not quarrelling with him. I am not against his ambition of becoming the president. It is the choice of the party to determine who becomes her presidential candidate,” he said.
