Why I Want To Be Next Senate President - Orji Kalu Writes APC NWC, Senators-elect

The incumbent Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has declared that it is his turn to emerge as the next Senate President of Nigeria.

The former Abia State Governor in a chat with newsmen said it is his turn to be the Senate President and hopes Nigerians would support him.

He boasted that he has not changed his known mobile phone number for about 24 years and he picks up his calls regularly. He added that even if he becomes the next Senate President, he would still be picking the call of the people.

Political U-turn?

Naija News recalls last week, Kalu had downplayed emerging rumours about his interest in the Senate Presidency, rather saying the focus should be on developing Nigeria.

Kalu disclosed that people have resorted to telling lies to assassinate his character over the position of the Senate presidency.

Speaking via a statement on Thursday, the former Abia State governor opined that the Senate should be focused on making the country better and not making personal attacks over the position of the Senate presidency.

He noted that for the nation to move forward all forms of hatred, lies and propaganda should be avoided

The statement reads, “By June 13, the National Assembly would be electing a new leadership to spearhead the affairs of the 10th Senate.

“As the race continues to gain the attention of all Nigerians, I implore my dear colleagues who have an interest in the Presidency of the senate to focus more on the difference they can make rather than exerting energy on blackmails.

“To progress and succeed as a nation, we must shun hatred, lies and propaganda. People are telling lies against my person; using my name for gossip, buying and selling. Because of their position, people have embarked on high-level and low-level character assassination and defamation of Orji Uzor Kalu.
