David Izevije, FCT Abuja- Real reasons have emerged on why the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and 2023 hopeful, Bola Ahmed Tinubu visited the Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.

 

The meeting which was held in Kalu’s Abuja residence was a pointer of the shape of things to come regarding the 2023 presidency even though both parties attempted to make light the real issues behind the visit.

 

Realpoliticsnigeria.ng reliably gathered that contrary to the claims of the former Governor of Lagos, he was there to inform and obtain the support of Kalu towards his yet to be announced ambition to run for the office of presidency. Realpoliticsnigeria.ng gathered this from a source close to Tinubu. According to the source, Tinubu was on a consultation drive that would see him visit a number of stakeholders including those perceived to be his likely adversaries in the build up to his ambition.

 

The source also hinted that Tinubu had urged  Kalu to support his ambition to govern Nigeria, he reminded Kalu that both of them shared the same progressive leanings and had always spoken truth to power as they did while they were governors.

 

Kalu however responded to Tinubu’s appeal for support with the reminder that he too was interested in the office come 2023 and was also consulting widely within and outside the party. He however urged Tinubu to continue with his consultations assuring him that should he emerge as the APC’S candidate, he would support him.

 

Lastly, it was also gathered that Tinubu had dangled before Kalu a plum position in the National Assembly, stating that he would need the likes of Kalu to push the country via the progressive agenda.
