It’s my turn to be Senate President, Kalu declares

..Promises to work in all corner of Nigeria if he elected

The Chief Whip of the Senate, and former governor, Orji Kalu, has declared his intention to run for Senate presidency in the 10th National Assembly.

Kalu disclosed this while briefing newsmen at the National Assembly on Tuesday morning.

There has been lobbying and politicking among the APC senators , particularly those from the south.

The likes of Godswill Akpabio (Akwa Ibom); Sani Musa (Niger); Barau Jibrin (Kano); and Dave Umahi (Ebonyi) are also said to be interested in running for the office of the Senate President.

Kalu said , “It is my turn to become the Senate President. If I am elected Senate President, I will be team Nigeria. I’m going to work in every corner of Nigeria.

“I schooled in Maiduguri, Borno State. I started my business in Lagos and spread it across all state capitals. My first name will be team Nigeria, my last name will be team Nigeria.

“Remember, I’m the only former governor who has never changed phone line for more than 20 years ago. I’m still willing to maintain that telephone number to answer all my calls. I’m not going to switch off my phones because I am Senate President.

Though the APC has said it hasn’t zoned the position yet but there have been widespread speculations that the number three seat should move to the south and it should be a Christian.

The permutations has been that since we have a Muslim as both the president and vice, the senate presidency should go to a Christian and to the south.
