Addressing a Press Conference in Bauchi weekend, the Plaintiffs insisted that only Kalu can rescue Nigeria from its numerous challenges, lamenting that the country is deep in suffering and only a strategic thinker like Kalu can rescue it.

“We know his capacity to change the scenario, his capacity to change things from negative to positive”, the plaintiffs said.

According to them, the former governor performed creditably when he served in Abia state, adding that despite its challenges, Kalu transformed the state by improving the living standard of the citizens.

“Because of his laudable achievements and leadership capacity, we entered into an agreement with him last 2nd February 2021 that he will contest for president but he is reluctant to declare his interest”, they said.

The plaintiffs who described Kalu as a person with all the capacity and capability to change the narratives of a nation pointed out that an ex-Abia state governor is a man of purpose and foresight.

“He is a mentor to many citizens, a dynamic Nigerian, an advocate of justice, a revolutionary politician, a consummate administrator, master strategy, he is a blessing not only to Igbo but the entire Nigerians”, they further stated.

In the suit with a number, BA/331/2021, the Plaintiffs are praying the court to compel former governor Kalu to respect the treaty and declare his interest to contest as President of Nigeria.

“We want the Court to compel Kalu to declare his interest to run in the 2023 General election as a presidential candidate under the platform of APC or any other party, we want the court to direct Kalu to commence preparation and put all the necessary machinery in place for the purpose of contesting as Presidential candidate”, they insisted

The plaintiffs said that many credible groups across the six senatorial zones were drumming support for Kalu to vie for president in 2023 because of his worthiness to deliver good governance to the nation.

The duo who said the credibility, honesty, and the capacity to deliver endeared Kalu to all Nigerians, noted that Kalu has built deep relationships with all Nigerians and will never betray their trust if eventually elected as Nigeria’s President in 2023.

The Plaintiffs while describing Kalu as a presidential material with experience in the private sector, executive and legislative arms of government, urged the ruling All Progressives Congress APC to commence a process of adopting him as the sole candidate of the party.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Sambo who ordered the Plaintiffs to serve Kalu with the originating summons in Abuja outside the jurisdiction of the court, adjourned the suit to 27 January 2022 for hearing.
