This is contained in a statement issued by the former Abia governor and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday.
Kalu stated that while he has nothing against the aspiration of anybody, he believed that the South-East was ripe for the presidency.
He stressed that should it be the turn of the South-East to produce the next president, that person should be him.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that former Governor of Lagos State, Sen. Ahmed Tinubu, Gov. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi and others, have declared their intention to seek nomination for the APC presidential ticket.
Tinubu had in November 2021 visited Kalu in his Abuja residence, where they discussed behind closed doors.(NAN)
