Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has come out to fault claims by the Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu that he will support Bola Tinubu during the presidential election.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the statement credited to Kalu was nothing but wishful thinking, and no member of G5 can railroad another member into supporting anyone against his will.

Ikpeazu added that for the avoidance of doubt, he has not and will not endorse Tinubu ahead of the upcoming elections.

Kalu had said, “Tinubu is well-liked by the North and is from the South-West and is going to get a [sizeable] vote in Imo, Ebonyi, Abia, Anambra and Enugu. And he’s going to have the support of Governor Wike of Rivers State, so we’re on track.”

“My governor here, Okezie Ikepazu, will also support Tinubu. My senatorial district is going to give Tinubu the vote, the puncher to give the 34, 35 per cent to be on the ballot.”

He reacted, “For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Ikpeazu has not endorsed Tinubu and will not endorse him because he is a leader that is guided by the feelings of his people.”
