Former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu has declared his interest in contesting for the Presidency in the 2023 elections.
As reported by The Sun, Orji Kalu said in a programme on Tuesday that he “will build a 20th century economy” for Nigeria if he’s given an opportunity to rule the nation.
“Yes, if you give me the presidency, why not, I will take. I am capable of doing the job,” he said at a radio station programme in Umuahia, Abia State.
“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.”
Kalu’s presidential ambition is yet to receive any positive reaction from social media users. Majority of the commenters were pointing towards his performance in Abia State, when he was a Governor.
