2019: Kalu Visits IBB To Beg For Buhari
Its about that time that former military Head of State retired Gen. Ibrahim Babangida became very relevant to political office seekers.
After Senate President Bukola Saraki visited him to get his support for his 2019 presidential ambition, president Muhammadu Buhari’s men have also gone to see him.
Former Abia governor Orji Kalu was with the former military ruler on Tuesday to support Buhari’s re-election bid.
Kalu, who met with Babangida in Minna, told newsmen, after the meeting that lasted for two hours, that he begged the former military leader to endorse Buhari’s bid for a fresh term in 2019.
“I am in Minna to campaign for President Muhammadu Buhari. At the meeting with Babangida, I pleaded with him to support Buhari’s re-election bid.
“He has told me that he will think about it. To me, that is a positive response,’’ he said.
Kalu said that consultations were ongoing, both at home and abroad, over Buhari’s re-election bid.
The former governor opined that Buhari deserved a fresh tenure because he had done very well.
“Buhari is doing well. He has achieved a lot for us. He is already taking Nigeria back to our glorious days,” he said.
Kalu identified the massive investments in the railways and improved road network as some of the major achievements of the Buhari administration, saying that much more would be achieved if he was re-elected.
