Kalu who advocated South East presidency, had also in January announced his personal interest in the highest office in the land.
Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has stated that he's not a houseboy of the north.
He made the statement while addressing journalists at the National Assembly on Wednesday.
He had also advocated for a Muslim-Muslim ticket, saying that's the only way the All Progressives Congress can win the 2023 election.
He said: “I’m not a house boy to anybody. I don’t fear anybody. If the president is a northerner or a westerner I will tell him the truth because I have been to a stage in life where nobody feeds me. I don’t need to talk to anybody to be comfortable. I’m not even afraid of death. So, when I speak I speak the truth and that is the truth.”
On Muslim-Muslim ticket, he said:
“If we don’t play the Muslim Muslim ticket, we are in trouble, and it will be difficult to win the election because the only thing left for Ahmed Tinubu today is to play a Muslim-Muslim ticket. If I am in Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s position, the wife is a Pastor in a Pentecostal Church. I will go for a Muslim-Muslim ticket. The most important thing is for the party to win. We should stop this rubbish about religion.
“Whether you put a Christian there, after all, if we win, already the wife is a Pastor and they have been living together for over 40 years. These are facts. So, don’t blame anyone, Tinubu’s wife is already like a deputy president. I am saying my opinion. I am a Catholic. This is Orji Kalu’s opinion. You cannot deny me my opinion.”
