A former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, has vowed that the only candidate he will support for the 2019 election is President Muhammadu Buhari.
Kalu, speaking on Saturday during a state visit to Jigawa, revealed that he told Alhaji Sule Lamido to his face that he would not back his presidential ambition.
“Although Alhaji Sule Lamido happens to be my long time political friend and an aspirant for Nigeria’s president in the PDP, I told him I won’t vote for him against President Muhammadu Buhari,” he said.
Kalu, who stated that he is on nationwide tour sensitizing Nigerians on why they should re-elect Buhari, took a swipe at former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
“People seem to have forgotten when former President Obasanjo was literally absent for about three years traveling all over the world when he was president and then nobody told him not seek re-election.
“He does not have the moral right to decide for Nigerians who becomes president. When he was president no one wrote letters advising him against seeking for re election,” the former governor added.
