Caleb Zagi (born October 1960) was elected Senator for Kaduna South constituency of Kaduna State, Nigeria, taking office on 29 May 2007. He is a member of the People's Democratic Party (PDP).[1]

Zagi obtained a Master's Degree In Business Administration. He was elected to the House Of Representatives in 2003, holding office until 2007.[1] He won the PDP nomination as senatorial candidate for the southern zone of Kaduna, but in January 2007 came under intense pressure to hand over his ticket to the incumbent senator Isaiah Balat, and to run on the deputy governor's ticket of the party. Zagi refused to yield the ticket, and was elected.[2]

In a mid-term evaluation of Senators in May 2009, ThisDay said that he had not sponsored any bills and had hardly contributed to debate in plenary, but he was active in committees, especially the Public Accounts Committee.[3]
