Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, Kalu, who is the senator representing Abia north, stated that he would work for “every corner” of the country.

“If I’m elected senate president, I’m going to work for 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 am the only governor who has never changed my phone number, since I became governor 24 years ago. I am willing to still maintain that telephone number to answer all my calls. I am not going to switch off my phones because I became senate president

“I’m hoping that Nigerians will pray for me to become senate president because it’s my turn”, added Kalu.

The 10th national assembly will be inaugurated in June after the president issues a proclamation.
