2023: It Is Time To Sheath Your Sword And Focus – Orji Kalu Sends Message To Tinubu, Atiku, Obi, Kwankwaso
The Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu has on Wednesday condemned candidates who involve in verbal attacks against their opponents during campaigns instead of focusing on the plans for the electorate.
Kalu, while reacting to questions at a media event held in his office in Abuja expressed his disappointment over some candidates’ actions.
He urged the flag bearers to ignore the soiled past of their opponents and focus on what they can put on the table for the people they are seeking votes from.
Speaking further, he warned spokespersons of the presidential candidates of the four leading political parties to desist from trivialities in their sophistries, stressing that their principals must not dwell on frivolous matters which invariably de-market the democratic process
According to him, “Everybody in Nigeria knows that there are four leading Presidential candidates for the 2023 Presidential election but their spokespersons are not giving Nigerians the required information as regards programmes and agenda of their principals on the myriad of challenges facing the nation.
What Nigerians want to hear from the four leading candidates of the four formidable political parties, is their plans on how to turn around the Nation’s economy for the better, end insurgency, banditry, kidnapping and other forms of crimes and criminalities bedevilling the country.
“Nigerians are tired of rhetorics on personal lives of the presidential candidates as being churned out by their spokespersons who primarily should be focusing on what their principals have in stock for the people across the various sectors.”
Naija News reports that the four leading presidential candidates in the upcoming 2023 election are Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
