The member representing Abia North Senatorial District, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu has stated that it is his turn to become the Senate President of the country in the 10th Assembly.
Speaking on Tuesday to newsmen in Abuja, the firmer Abia State Governor urged the All Progressive Congress to zone the Senate President seat to the South East.
He also reminded the people that he has maintained a phone line for 20 years and will not change it to be accessible to the people.
“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.”
Chief Uzor Kalu maintained that as the Chief Whip of the Senate, he is the highest ranking Senate in the South East and so deserves to be the Senate President.
