Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Kalu has claimed the presidential candidates of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, and the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, are indirectly working for the success of the All Progressives Congress Candidate, Bola Tinubu, in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election.
According to Daily Post, the Lawmaker stated this while featuring on the Channels Television’s Political Paradigm programme aired on Tuesday.
He claimed that the APC’s support base in the geopolitical regions of the north-west and north-east is still intact.
The APC leader further declared that he does not trust pre-election polls, according to which Obi is leading the other 18 presidential contenders, including Tinubu.
“I don’t believe in the poll; the poll is not realistic,” Kalu said.
“If the poll wants to be realistic, Kwankwaso and Peter Obi are working for us because nobody has touched our base; nobody has touched the strongest base of APC. The North-West and the North-East are our bases.
“But come to the South-East, it is divided, come to the South-South, it is divided, it is finished with Obidients. Nobody has touched our base; our base is still intact; it is as good as anything,” he said.
