Orji Kalu, senate chief whip, says if Nigerians make him president in 2023, he will build a 20th century economy. 

The world is currently in the 21st century.

According to The Sun, Kalu said this on a programme at a radio station in Umuahia, Abia state capital, while speaking on his presidential ambition in 2023.

The former governor of the state said he is capable of doing the job.

“Yes, if you give me the presidency, why not, I will take. I am capable of doing the job,” he said.

“The problem is who is capable of doing the job. For now, I am focusing on my constituency; there is a lot of job to be done.

“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.”

On Tuesday, Kalu said he would be glad to serve as president if given the opportunity by the electorate.

In December 2019, a federal high court in Lagos convicted the chief whip of money laundering to the tune of N7.1 billion.

Kalu was released from the Kuje Correctional Centre in June after spending five months in prison.

    When orji kalu was the governor of Abia State what did he do? Abia State then was the most dirty state in the federation. Just one state he can not manage, he is talking about being the President. He should go and seat down.
