Tinubu not a threat to my presidential ambition – Orji Kalu

Tinubu (R) and Orji Kalu (L)

Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has said the former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, is not a threat to his presidential ambition because is not only about money.

Kalu said this during an interview on Channels Television.

Asked if he sees Tinubu as a threat, Kalu answered, “No! and I am not a threat to his ambition. By the time we meet in Eagles Square, this issue will be settled.

“Mind you, politics is not only about money; it is about the people you are going to govern -the people of the North-West, the people of North-East, the people of North-Central, the people of the South-East, the people of the South-West, and the people of South-South, and we have the people. I can move the people and the people are with me.”

Kalu confirmed that he told Tinubu he won’t run but changed his mind because of circumstances.

He said: “I told Tinubu that I was not going to run, that is the truth.

“It was circumstance from the south-east, south-west, north-west, north-central, and north-east that made me decide to join the race. I was governor with him (Tinubu), there is nothing difficult in challenging anybody.

“We are all going to meet at the Eagle Square, and we will square it out there. There is no difficulty. I am the only political businessman that is first recognised as a billionaire, and I am not sure that there is anything those people can do, in terms of money, that I cannot do.

I don’t think they can speak to anybody in Nigeria or in the world that I cannot speak to.”

Kalu added he has not informed Buhari of his intention.

He said: “I have not even discussed with the President that I want to become President.

“The Last time I met President Buhari, I was able to discuss issues that concern the nation – terrorism, banditry, and how to stabilise our country, and other major issues in the National Assembly like the electoral law.”
