The head of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, said Igbo would be in trouble if Orji Kalu lost his aspirations to be the next Senate President.
In a statement signed by his communications aide Osho Oluwatosin on Monday, Governor Ayodele said opposition parties in the country could fight the race but would be split over money.
“I still think that the best candidate for Senate President is Orji Uzor Kalu. If he loses it, Igbo will be in trouble.”
“The Igbos in the house will make it difficult for him but to balance the situation, an Igbo person and a Christian is better. A Muslim emerging the next senate president will lead to crisis, there will be so much rowdy session and disagreement in the house,’’ he said.
