Orji Uzor Kalu, a Former Governor of Abia State, has revealed his grand plan for Nigeria if he becomes the President in 2023.
The former Chief Whip in the Senate told journalists in Umuahia, the state’s capital, that if granted the opportunity to take over the presidential seat, he will build a 20th-century economy for the country.
The senator said: “Yes, if you give me the presidency, why not, I will take. I am capable of doing the job.
Stressing his desire to not only return to the Senate, Kalu categorically said: “…if the people of Nigeria want me to be President, they will show the hand. I can do the job. I can build a 20th-century economy for our people.”
However, Kalu pointed out that not many persons are capable of doing the job and that for him, he is more pre-occupied on developing his constituency.
He said: “The problem is who is capable of doing the job. For now, I am focusing on my constituency; there is a lot of job to be done.”
Earlier, Kalu came under fierce criticism following a statement attributed to him on the 2023 Presidency where he was quoted to have said there was no zoning conflict in the All Progressives Congress, APC.
