Former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu stated that he is not interested in the country’s presidential post but will not hesitate if given the chance to lead the nation.
Orji Uzor Kalu is a Nigerian politician and businessperson. He is the chairman of SLOK Holding and the Daily Sun and New Telegraph newspapers in Nigeria. He served as the Governor of Abia State, Nigeria from 29 May 1999 to 29 May 2007.
While speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, he made this known;
“I am not having that kind of ambition. But if I am given, why not? I can take it.”
“I am a Catholic. In the Catholic church, we don’t see visions. Well, if visions are being seen, and people say this and that, if it is the will of God that I will become president, why not? I am very capable mentally and otherwise to do whatever Nigerian people want me to do but not through prophecy.”
“I believe if Nigerians and the Nigerian people want to be fair, a Southeast president from Igbo extraction will be the next thing to do,” he explained.
