The Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, says if Nigerians make him president in 2023, he will build a 21st-century economy.
9NEWS NIGERIA gathered that Kalu made this known during a programme at a radio station in Umuahia, Abia state capital, while speaking on his presidential ambition in 2023.
The former governor of the state said he is capable of doing the job.
“Yes, if you give me the presidency, why not, I will take. I am capable of doing the job,” 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 jobs to be done.
“If you give me an 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.”
