The Senate Chief Whip, Sen. Orji Kalu, on Monday said that he would serve as Nigeria’s President if given the opportunity by the electorate.
“I am still in the Senate, and I will seek for re-election into the senate but if our people want me to serve as President I will not hesitate,” he said.
He said that there was no zoning in the APC constitution, adding that any person in the party can contest for the position of the President.
“Zoning is not a constitutional matter in APC, any person can contest any post in APC,” he said.
On the issue of insecurity in Nigeria, he alleged that there was sabotage in the country’s security system.
