Former Abia state governor Orji Uzor Kalu has claimed that people are begging him to run for the seat of the president come 2023.
The Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate who is representing Abia South Senatorial District in the red chamber, made this known during an interaction with journalists after being crowned Kibiya (Arrow) of Argungu Emirate by Emir Alhaji Mohammed Mera.
“I don’t have a presidential ambition ahead of 2023 because my plan for now is to return to the senate which to me is a very interesting place to mingle with other Nigerians and serve one’s father’s land.
“There are only two zones that have not produced the President of Nigeria, including the northeast. I have never thought of running for the presidency.
“However, everywhere I go, everybody is asking me to contest in 2023. I have told the leadership of the senate, my wife and my immediate family members, including my mother, that I want to come back to the senate.
“My mother’s breasts are two. I want to have the first and the second breast. My first four years in the senate will end in 2023. I will like to do the second term and retire from politics to become a farmer.
“Nigeria President is not what I want; they know how they arrange it, if the arrangement was done and I was picked; no problem.
“It takes a lot of consultations. Other regions must agree that I should run, it could be possible because I have the capacity and ability to do the job given to me by every Nigerian, not by some people,” he said.
