Video: I’ve been using the same phone for 24 years – Orji Uzor Kalu

Nigerian senator, Orji Uzor Kalu has declared his intention to contest for Senate presidency in the 10th National Assembly.

The Chief Whip of the Senate stated this while speaking to journalists after being re-elected to represent Abia North in the Upper Chamber.

Addressing the press on Tuesday at the National Assembly, Kalu said it was his turn to become Senate President, being a ranking lawmaker and from the South East.

This is also as he said that he has been using the same phone line since he became governor of Abia state over 20 years ago.

He said; “It is my turn to become the Senate President. If I’m elected Senate President, I will be team Nigeria. I’m going to work in every corner of Nigeria.

I schooled in Maiduguri, Borno State. I started my business in Lagos and spread it across all state capitals. My first name will be team Nigeria, my last name will be team Nigeria.

Remember, I’m the only governor who has never changed my phone since I became governor 24 years ago. I’m still willing to maintain that telephone number to answer all my calls. I

’m not going to switch off my phones because I’m Senate President. I’m hoping that Nigerians will pray for me to become Senate President because it’s my turn.”
