Dr. Oji Uzo Kalu was in Jigawa state for two days on a state visit where he paid a courtesy visit to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant as parts of his nationwide tour sensitising Nigerians on the dire need to allow president Muhammadu Buhari to remain as the president come 2019.

Speaking to newsmen shortly after a brief closed-door meeting that lasted for about minutes, the former Abia state governor who described Sule Lamido as his friend, said “Although Alhaji Sule Lamido happens to be my bosom friend and an aspirant for Nigeria’s president‎ in Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), I told him I won’t vote for him against president Muhammad Buhari.”

He said “president Buhari is my presidential candidate that I will support and vote for in 2019 because he is my party member and informed me about his ambition. My friend Lamido inPeoples Democratic Party (PDP) did not inform me .”

Kalu stated further that “Alhaji Sule Lamido is my good friend, the difference in political parties Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will never affect our relationship. As you can see, we ate, we drank together and we joked.

Dr. Oji Ozo Kalu was earlier at Dutse government house where he witnessed a traditional horse riding by the emir of Dutse, Alhaji Nuhu Sunusi when the emir paid the governor Sallah homage at the government house and later paid a courtesy call to the governor and presented a certificate from Kalu foundation to the governor to double his campaign on PMB’s second term.

During the courtesy call to the governor, Dr. Kalu blasted former president Olusegun Obasanjo over‎ the letter he wrote to Buhari advising him not to seek re-election again, said the former president lacks the moral right to decide who becomes what in Nigeria.

“People seem to have forgotten when former president Obasanjo under Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was literally absent for about three years travelling all over the world‎ when he was president Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members did not  ask him to step down and then nobody told him not seek re-election,” he stated.
