Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Kalu, says he will consider contesting for president if the All Progressives Congress (APC) zones its presidential ticket to the South-East region. Kalu disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Tuesday after Christmas and New Year break. Before now, many pro-democracy groups have endorsed Kalu and expressed their readiness to see that he emerges as the flag bearer of the APC in the 2023 presidential election. Also the presidential campaign posters of the former Abia State governor have been spotted in major cities in the country. While commending the groups drumming support for him to vie for president in 2023, Kalu said they found him worthy to deliver good governance to the nation.
