Orji Uzor Kalu

A Coalition of All Progressives Congress (APC) Support Groups under the aegis of APC National Patriots is prodding the leadership of the party and the Senators-elect to unanimously elect the most ranking Senator from the South East, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu as the next President of the red chamber of the National Assembly.

Uzor Kalu has also been the Senate Chief Whip and representing Abia North Senatorial Zone.

The Coordinator of the group, Musa Uba, in a statement today, March 7, said that with the victory of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President-elect and Senator Kashim Shettima from the South-West and North-East respectively, the leadership of the party should zone the position of the Senate Presidency to the South East Zone.

The group, which consists of notable members of the APC who worked for the victory of the party in the Presidential polls, said that the nation would need a dynamic, visionary, stable and purposeful National Assembly that will complement Asiwaju Tinubu’s plans to deliver on the Renewed Hope Mandate.

Uba said that Senator Orji Uzor Kalu is the ideal Senate President that Nigeria needs now, adding that he has nationalist vision with legislative capacity and competence and an unalloyed commitment to the APC.

He said that the group had x-rayed candidates who have eyes on the Senate President’s seat and noted that Senator Orji Uzor Kalu is the best among his peers in the areas of legislative experience and expertise, having sponsored over 25 bills that addresses the needs of the nation, moved motions for the security and peace of Nigeria.

The APC support group maintained that Senator Orji Uzor Kalu’s consistency in his support to the party and his acceptability across the six geo- political zones points to character and dependability which are critical to the person who will occupy the office of the President of Senate.

The group futher appealed to the leadership of the ruling party to zone the position to South east on the basis of equity, fairness, unity, justice and stability of the peace of the nation.
