Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu

Former governor of Abia State and Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu has stated there is nothing wrong if the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, runs a Muslim-Muslim ticket

Kalu, who spoke while answering questions from reporters at the Senate, said it would be politically naive for Tinubu, a minority Muslim from the South-West, to choose a minority Christian from the North as his running mate.

He insisted that since Tinubu’s wife is a senior pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), she will balance the ticket as a ‘de facto deputy president’ should Tinubu win the presidency.

He said that APC cannot afford to field two minorities and expect to win the 2023 presidential election.
