POLITICS NIGERIA reports that in a statement released on Tuesday, Fani-Kayode expressed confidence that the 10th Senate would be led competently by Kalu if elected as the Senate President.

Tweeting, Fani-Kayode wrote: “Senator Orji Kalu and Senator Sani Musa are both very close to me and I am proud to call them my brothers. I believe that the Nigerian Senate would be safe hands in their hands as Senate President and Deputy Senate President.
“Their loyalty to our great party the APC and to our leader and President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is unambiguous, total and second to none, and they are both seasoned, brilliant, courageous, tough, wise and experienced public officers. What an extraordinary combination they would make as Senate President and Deputy Senate President, respectively.
“This would be innovative and refreshing. Under their leadership the opposition parties would have sleepless nights, the Senate would be strong, bold and reliable, the APC would flourish and go from strength to strength and the Nigerian people would be the better for it. I wish them well in this race and they have not only my support but that of millions of other party leaders and supporters.”
