Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, Chief Whip of the Senate, on Thursday said “cohesion and consensus” among the regions in Nigeria are the only means to achieving presidency.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that according to Kalu, late Moshood Kashimawo Abiola would have become president “if money can buy” presidency.

Kalu also asked President Muhammadu Buhari to support his man, Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, in his quest to become the next president of Nigeria.

“The earliest Nigerians and presidential aspirants understand that no amount of money can buy the president of the country , the better for everyone,” Kalu wrote on his official Facebook page.

“It is only cohesion and consensus among the regions that can produce a president. If you throw in money , the majority of the electorates will collect the money but still vote according to their conscience.

“If money can buy the office of the president of Nigeria, Late MKO Abiola could have bought it with extra change. If money can buy the president, former President Goodluck Jonathan could have bought the presidential seat in 2015.

“I urge President Muhammed Buhari to consider giving Nigeria a man who can give the entire country a sense of belonging ; fix our economy; secure all parts of the country ;take education very serious and protect his legacy .

“The man Nigerians can trust is Senator Ahmad Lawan.

“Picking Ahmad Lawan as the consensus candidate of the APC will heal and stabilize the country as it is the closest to equity , justice and fairness.

“I strongly believe that the fairness Nigerians need is to produce a president from the South East of Nigeria. In the absence of the South East , it is the North East .

“These two regions are the only ones yet to produce the president of Nigeria and since the opposition has gone North East , it is ideal and wise that the APC go North East .

“I am sure Nigerians will not waste their votes on any candidate that is not from the two regions in the next year general elections and following years.”
