Former Abia state governor, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has stated that he is more than capable to become the next president of Nigeria.
The senator made this statement on a programme at a radio station in Umuahia, Abia state, while speaking on his presidential ambition in 2023.
The current senate chief whip also added that he will build a 20th century economy if he is given an opportunity to become the President of the country.
When asked if he would like to become President in 2023, he said;
Yes, if you give me the presidency, why not, I will take. I am capable of doing the job.
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.
If you give me opportunity, I will like to go back to the Senate for a second term, but 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.
Senator Orji Uzor Kalu is married with 4 children.
