‘It Is My Turn To Be Senate President’ – Orji Kalu

'It Is My Turn To Be Senate President' - Orji Kalu

Orji Kalu, the Senate Chief Whip, announced on Tuesday that it is his turn to be President of the Senate in the 10th National Assembly.

The lawmaker representing Abia North Senatorial District while speaking to journalists at the National Assembly called on his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), to zone the seat to his district.

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

“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 lines for more than 20 years. 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’m Senate President.

“I’m hoping that Nigerians will pray for me to become Senate President because it’s my turn,” Kalu said

Kalu also stated that as Chief Whip of the Ninth Senate, he is the highest ranking Senator from the South East and thus deserves the position.

The APC has not officially designated the location of the National Assembly leadership positions for the 10th Assembly.
