Orji Kalu Insists On Running For Senate President

The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Kalu is insisting that he will not step down for anyone in the race for the office of the senate president.

Speaking to journalists at the National Assembly today, Senator Kalu says talks are at an advanced stage between himself and former Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, to contest the 10th Senate Presidency on a joint ticket and the outcome of their meetings would be unveiled soon.

Senator Kalu’s position is contrary to the stand of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC which has zoned the seat of the Senate Presidency to the South-South and chose Senator Godswill Akpabio to lead the 10th Senate.

ENYIMBA FM recalls the National Working Committee of the All Progressive Party had shown their preference for Senators Godswill Akpabio and Jibrin Barau for the office of the Senate President and Deputy respectively.
