The Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Kalu, on Tuesday said it is his turn to be President of the Senate in the 10th National Assembly.
Speaking to journalists at the National Assembly, the lawmaker representing Abia North Senatorial District asked his party – the All Progressives Congress (APC) – to zone the seat to his district.
He said, “Remember I am the only governor, who has never changed my phone number since I became governor 24 years ago. The same Mtn I have is what I’m having and I will be willing to still maintain that phone number to answer to my calls.
I’m not going to switch off my phones, because I’m Senate President but I’m hoping that Nigerian people will pray for me to be Senate President because it’s my turn,” he added
The APC has not officially zoned the seat of the leadership positions of the National Assembly for the 10th Assembly.
