Naira scarcity: I’m suffering, no money to cook food – Orji Kalu


Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu has lamented the hardship emanating from the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN money policy.

In an interview on Channels Television’s election programme, The 2023 Verdict, Orji claimed that recently, his family could not get enough money to cook.

“You can see the policy is right but I don’t keep money in my house. I am suffering,” he said.

“The other day, my house manager told my wife in Abuja that we have no money to cook food. My wife was virtually roaming around and we feed over 250 people every day. It is a problem to me and to everybody.”

“This is why if I am in the position of the Mr President as I have told you before, I will listen to the Supreme Court judgement. Whether they are right or wrong, Mr President should obey the law and ask his Attorney General l to put a review to the Supreme Court.”

Kalu, who currently represents Abia North at the National Assembly, also spoke on the chances of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Presidential Candidate of the APC in the election.

“My governor here, Okezie Ikepazu, will also support Tinubu. My senatorial district is going to give Tinubu the vote. The puncher to give the 34, 35 percent to be on the ballot,” he said.
