Former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to present a man who is capable of protecting his legacy when his tenure elapses in 2023.
Ahead of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential primary election, the Chief Whip of the 9th Senate, urged the president to ensure the emergence of a candidate who will prioritise education and fix the nation’s economy.
Kalu who recently announced his withdrawal from the presidential race, said that no amount of money can buy the seat of the president, maintained that It is only cohesion and consensus among the regions that can produce a president.
In a post on his Facebook page, Kalu wrote, “the earliest Nigerians and presidential aspirants understand that no amount of money can buy the president of the country, the better for everyone.
“It is only cohesion and consensus among the regions that can produce a president. If you throw in money, majority of the electorates will collect the money but still vote according to their conscience.
“If money can buy the office of the president of Nigeria, Late MKO Abiola could have bought it with extra change. If money can buy the president, former President Goodluck Jonathan could have bought the presidential seat in 2015.
“I urge President Muhammadu Buhari to consider giving Nigeria a man who can give the entire country a sense of belonging; fix our economy; secure all parts of the country; take education very serious and protect his legacy”.
