Orji Kalu has said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo has no moral right to decide who becomes President in Nigeria.
According to Premium Times, Kalu said Obasanjo was travelling around the world for three years when he became President in 1999.
The former Governor said this on Saturday, June 16, 2018, in Jigawa state while rallying support for President Buhari’s re-election.
He said, “Hello, I’m Donald Duke and I’m urging each and everyone of you watching me right now to go out there, get registered, pick up your voter’s card, and, on the day of elections, go there, cast your vote.
“Ensure that your votes are counted before you leave the booth. This is important, it determines your future and how well you’ll live in this country.”
When the 56-year-old made his candidacy public knowledge at the annual Law dinner of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in Enugu, on June 8, he said he was no longer going to sit back and allow the country to continue sinking under its current leadership. He also urged young Nigerians to stop being mere onlookers.
“I am putting myself forward for the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I’m not going to sit back any longer and postulate. And I want each one of those young people there to be part of it. That’s why I urge them to go and get their voter’s card and be part of this society,” he said.
