'Igbo will vote Igbo, Yoruba will vote Yoruba' - Orji Uzor Kalu states

"In 2015, what will happen is that the Igbo will vote for the Igbo, Yoruba for Yoruba and Hausa vote for Hausa. Then, we will all come to Abuja to discuss and determine who should be Nigerian President… Anybody who thinks that there is going to be a straight ballot thing to produce the President in 2015 is only fooling himself." - Former Abia State Governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu said this at the Professor David Ijalaiye annual lecture series which took place yesterday at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife.

What do you guys think of this statement? Nigerians are not that shallow and tribalistic, are we? We will vote because someone is from our tribe and not because we believe in that person? C'mon! Please share your thoughts...
