IBB picks Orji Kalu as Buhari’s successor

Former Head of State, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida , has named the lawmaker representing Abia North district, Orji Uzor Kalu as a possible successor for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

The former military president stated this in a documentary aired on AIT on Sunday.

This is coming after Babangida spoke on the kind of character a politician is expected to exhibit in his desire to take over in 2023.

Babangida who was asked how he would like to address the leadership issue in the country during the interview said, “We are running and we will be running a democracy, but we haven’t reached the level. We didn’t have the democratic institution that are working very well, our institutions must be above parties and politics and so on and so forth.”

“You have to have a lot of knowledge be it business, be it academics and so on and I feel everybody, every politician at certain age must aspire. Obama is just making sixty years old after serving two terms in the United States so as Clinton and so on and so forth.”

“So we can have the likes of Orji Uzor Kalu who is interested in running the country and why not?”
