On Tuesday as battle for the leadership of the 10th National Assembly continues, the Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Kalu, claimed it is his turn to be Senate President.
The former Governor of Abia State, who spoke with journalists at the National Assembly, urged his party, the ruling All Progressives Congress, to zone the Senate Presidency to his district.
Kalu opined that if elected president of the Senate, he would work for the development of the entire nation.
He said, “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.
“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”.
Reports had emerged that the Senate Presidency may be zoned to the Southeast, and Kalu, the lawmaker representing Abia North Senatorial District, could be fit for the position.
