A Senator-elect for Abia North senatorial zone, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, has warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) to conclude issues concerning the leadership of the Ninth Assembly in order to avoid division among the lawmakers.
The former governor, however, expressed hope that the leadership of the ruling party will zone the position of the Deputy Senate President to the South East.
Speaking to newsmen at the orientation programme for members of the Ninth Assembly, he said that he will champion enactment of bills and other initiatives that will aid in revamping the economy.
“The Nigerian people will see me contributing to how to stimulate the economy,” Kalu said.
“The economy is very important to me. We need to put the economy on the right path so that people will get money to spend and be good citizens.
“We are going to work hand-in-hand with the executive to see how we can put bills that will stimulate the economy and make the private sector to be strong.”
“I don’t want the party to start having divisions in the National Assembly. I want us to wrap up this business.
“I want us to speak in one voice in the National Assembly.
“I have enormous respect for the leadership of the country and the leadership of the party,” he added.
