"Igbo Tribe will NOT Support Jonathan come 2015”– Orji Uzor Kalu

The symptoms of a pending presidential tussle appear on the horizon for the players within
the various regions of the federal republic of Nigeria. This is as credible information coming
out of the presidency indicates the President of Nigeria; Dr. Goodluck Ebelemi Jonathan may
be prepping to join the presidential race again in 2015.

The former two-time governor of Abia State and prominent voice in today’s Igbo
contemporary project, Orji Uzor Kalu, in light of the new developments in Nigeria, has
expressed his concerns towards a disunited Igbo tribe.

In a brief chat with 247ureports.com, the former governor and one-time presidential
candidate expressed deep disappointment with the Jonathan administration. He said that the
Jonathan administration lied to Ndigbo over his plans for 2015 presidency. According to Orji
Uzor Kalu, “Jonathan promised Ndigbo the 2015 presidency” but he has gone back on his
promise – and he is now preparing for 2015 elections.

“Ndigbo will not support Jonathan” said the former governor who also revealed that he is
presently engaged in uniting the various factions within the Igbo political sphere. He pointed
to the political quandary within the All Progressive Grand Alliance [APGA] as unnecessary. “I
want to bring together our Igbo leaders, Senator Annie Okonkwo, Gov Rochas Okorocha,
Victor Umeh, Chekwas Okorie and other Igbo sons, so we can produce an Igbo president”,
said Orji Uzor Kalu while assuring that he will do whatever is required for Ndigbo to produce
the next president of Nigeria come 2015. “I am not doing politics now. I am not a member of
any party. I am doing Ndigbo now”.
