“I am still in the Senate, and I will look for re-appointment into the Senate, however on the off chance that our kin need me to fill in as President I won’t spare a moment,” NAN cited him as saying.

He kept up that there was no zoning in the APC constitution, including that anybody in the APC can challenge for the situation of the President.

Talking on the instability issue in the nation, Kalu claimed that there was harm in the nation’s security framework.

He, in any case, communicated idealism that the Public Gathering would keep on working together with the leader in handling the security challenges in the nation.
