The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has stated that he’s the best candidate to become the next Senate President.
He spoke on Wednesday after meeting the President-elect, Bola Tinubu at a closed-door meeting that lasted for about 30 minutes in Abuja.

Kalu also stated that he met with the President-elect to officially welcome and felicitate him on his return from a successful vacation in Paris, France.
The former governor recalled saying during the celebration of Mass to mark his 63rd birthday that the Tinubu was fit and healthy and would return soon.
He said: “I told Nigerians that Tinubu is not sick and that he would return soon and a few days after I made that comment, today you can see for yourself that he is here.
“So, this shows that our President-elect is fit and fully ready for the Job of leading Nigerians just like I said. I just came to congratulate and officially welcome him back to the country and we are ready to support him in the task ahead.
“I am the best among the candidates. I have the capacity to unite Nigeria and I am the best to work with our President-elect for the best interest of Nigeria. Nigerians need to feel the impact of our party. I have the integrity, honesty, and experience to lead the Senate.”
Naija News reports that Kalu is one of the Senators who have openly declared interest to emerge as the Senate President for the 10th National Assembly.
