- 2023: Nigerian President Should Focus On Economy, Security — Sen. Orji Kalu
Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has called on Nigerians to vote for a President in 2023 who has what it takes to revive the economy and restore security across the country, noting that these should be the two major focal points.
According to the former Abia governor, the office of the Nigerian President is about individuals who have the capacity to effectively manage human and material resources and all spheres of individuals. Fielding questions from newsmen at the National Assembly complex on the state of the nation, the Abia North Senator insisted that capacity and competence should be the yardstick to measure the next president who will take over the affairs of the country in 2023.
“The president should be a president that should be able to work for the Nigerian people. There are two major things a president should look at, the economy and security. “These are two major areas to focus on, to bring back our economy to path of prosperity.
“The President should be about openness, ability to manage your journalists, ability to manage mechanics, ability to manage professors, manage the legislators with their public experience and capacity to build and bring back the pride of Nigerians to be able to carry the Nigerian passport,” he said.
He expressed optimism that Nigeria will surmount its current challenges if a credible leader is elected devoid of ethnic or tribal sentiment.
