Former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu has claimed that an Igbo man can only emerge as President of Nigeria, if he joins the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Kalu stated this while speaking to some political office holders, who served in his administration at his Igbere country home in Bende council area.
He urged them to join the APC, to ensure the party wins the entire South East zone in the 2019 general elections.
Kalu also insisted that APC was not a Hausa party, neither did it belong to President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Let me tell you this clearly, APC is not an Hausa party as they have been deceiving the people. APC is not owned by President Muhammadu Buhari; the possibility of an Igbo man becoming the president of this country is clearer in APC than in any other party including the PDP.
“When we formed the PDP, some people were saying it was a Hausa party as they are saying of APC now, but it was the same PDP that produced former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan who are southerners”, he said.
