Mr Kalu, who spoke to journalists on Tuesday in Abuja, said this is because the presidential candidate is a strategist.
“The Igbo people are going to be the biggest beneficiary of Tinubu’s presidency, and you will see it. Hold me responsible,” Mr Kalu said.
He said he was not against a president of Igbo extraction, adding that becoming Nigeria’s president was not a regional issue.
“I have no problem with an Igbo man becoming president, but we have to do it with other Nigerians.
“If you don’t do it with other Nigerians, it’s not going to work, no matter how popular you are; this is the president of Nigeria, not the president of Igbo land,” he said.
“If anyone is to be nominated as president of Igbo extraction, I could have been the one, but I see it not feasible yet,” Mr Kalu added.
The senator stressed that he was less concerned about candidates but the political and party affair.
He urged everyone who ran with Mr Tinubu at the primaries to come together and deliver the party.
Meanwhile, Mr Kalu also noted that there was no threat of impeachment by the opposition senators against President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We have the number to defend the President and Senate President on the floor,” he said. “President Buhari has done well in most areas, and we also had failures in some areas.”
Nonetheless, he admitted that senators were concerned about the insecurity ravaging the country, just as he noted that the issue had been addressed.
