Orji Kalu, senate chief whip, has said that if Nigerians make him president in 2023, he will build a 20th century economy.
Kalu made this known recently while speaking on his presidential ambition towards 2023.
Kalu was reported to have said “Yes, if you give me the presidency, why not, I will take. I am capable of doing the job,” he said.
He further said “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 was also reported to have recently said, “I would be glad to serve as president if given the opportunity by the electorate”.
You would recall that, in December 2019, a federal high court in Lagos had convicted the Orji Kalu of money laundering to the tune of N7.1 billion.
He was however recently released from the Kuje Correctional Centre. He had spent five months in prison.
