Senate Chief Whip and former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu says he is capable of taking the job of president.
Speaking during a programme at a radio station in Umuahia, Abia state capital, Kalu made it known that if he is given the opportunity to be president, he will build a 20th century economy for Nigeria.
“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.” he said
