Former Chief Whip of the Senate and Senator representing Abia North Senatorial District, Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu says the President, Bola Tinubu is anxious to repair the country’s economy despite hardship faced by several Nigerian families.

He said the President who has experience in the private sector cannot afford to fail the system, expressing hope that he has the capacity to deliver.

In a video release obtained by ABN TV, the former Abia governor said despite not giving him the initial support to lead the country, when the party’s primaries ended, all machinery of the APC was collapsed to support then candidate Tinubu.

He is a man who can do this job if he wants to do it. I have never had doubt if Tinubu will be able to do this job or not. He will do the job because I don’t what else he will be thinking.

“He’s not looking for money, he’s not looking for show, he’s not looking for anything. He should give his life for Nigeria. Going abroad is part of the the business as long as he has strong economic team in Nigeria“, he stated.


The lawmaker said he’s convinced that Tinubu will justify the confidence of the Nigerian masses on him, saying those having doubt about the President’s capacity do not know him.

Nigerians can call me names, I don’t care. I’m not looking for anything from anybody, I say my mind”, he added.

He therefore called for an end to the unguarded criticism of the President, urging for prayers and support for him.

Many Nigerian families have further faced hardship, arising from the escalating cost of living and inflation.

This prompted the largest pressure group in the country, the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to embark on a two-day warning strike.

It however was called off after one day, as labour leaders cited threats to end their action.
