A coalition of Northern Nigerian groups under the auspices of Northern Nigerian Peace Foundation, a foremost Peace and Sustainable development group with celebral and patriotic young Nigerians across the 19 Northern States has urge the former Governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu to run for 2023 Presidential election.
In a statement signed by the group’s National Coordinator, Ambassador Zarewa Salisu Sageer, National Secretary,Amb. Abu Bature Dandume, Comrade Muhammad Yakubu Arigu and others said Kalu has the capacity and leadership prowess to move Nigeria forward.
“As part of our contributions and intervention on the new peace and security building dynamics and consolidation across Nigeria, It has become absolutely imperative to write and urge his Excellency, the former Governor of Abia State and the current Chief Whip of the Senate, Distinguished Senator (Dr.) Orj Uzor Kalu to contest for the 2023 Presidential election as we believe that, he has the leadership acumen, capacity, temerity and contacts to govern a complex nation like Nigeria.”
“We believe that his personality, qualities and where he is coming from will bring lots of commitments and support to the All Progressive Congress as millions of Nigerians who are apolitical will throw their weights behind APC for the purpose of equity and fairness.”
“Nigerians must know that the goodwill, respect, honour and popularity enjoyed by the APC leader was made possible by millions of Nigerians who hold him in high esteem, believed in him, and honours him without any kind of inducement from him.”
“We believe that honour is reciprocal and that if a man is honoured by his people, it will only be right for the one that
is honoured to also honour those that honoured him. The best way Dr Orji Uzor Kalu can reciprocate the immense goodwill, respect and honour given to him by Nigerians is to heed to this call
to contest the 2023 presidential election as we hope that he will make it to the number one position in Nigeria and chart a new course for
our nation through purposeful and selfless leadership.”
