According to the Leadership News, about three months ago, he was honoured with a Chieftaincy Title, "Magari Alheri Hausa" (the Great Giver of the Hausa Land) by the Emir of Daura, in recognition of his contributions to the Education of Indigent Children in the North. If Okorocha decides to run for President in 2023, He might enjoy the support of the Northerners.

Like Okorocha, Kalu is an Ex-Governor turned Senator. According to the Daily Post, Kalu is also a Chief in Daura, he holds the Tranditioner Title of "Dan-baiwan Hausa" (Gifted Child of Hausa), he was honoured with the Title few years ago by the Daura Emirate Council considering his track records in the Development of Nigeria and support towards the Administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Even though, Kalu has previously contested for Presidency in 2007 but he lost. As the agitation for the 2023 Igbo Presidency gathers momentum, He might enjoy the backing of Northerners if he decides to contest.
