 I Still Remain In PDP – Ike Ekweremadu

 

DEPUTY President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has described reports that he was on his to dumping the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the All Progressives Congress, APC to save his job as not false, but baseless.
Ekweremadu who noted that he still remains in PDP, said that at the moment, he was more concerned about fixing the country’s biting economic and security conditions and other challenges than saving his job as the Deputy President of the Senate.
A statement in Abuja by the Special Assistant (Political Matters) to the Deputy President of the Senate on Political Affairs, Hon. Okey Ozoani, described the reports as “a fantasy of those peddling it”. He assured the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, faithful and Nigerians that “Ekweremadu is going nowhere”.
The statement read,
 “The Office of the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has dismissed as false, insinuations and reports that the Senator could be on his way to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to save his job.

“Senator Ekweremadu is not contemplating leaving PDP. He is more concerned about fixing the country’s biting economic and security conditions and other challenges than saving his job as the Deputy President of the Senate.

“It is his view that Nigeria has to first exist for us to have political parties to belong to or political offices to occupy. Studies have shown a direct relationship between economic conditions and survival of democracy. “The primary responsibility our Constitution places on our government is to cater to the wellbeing of the citizens as well as security of their lives and property.

 

 

It would be recalled that Senators elected on the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, were on Wednesday last week lobbying the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu of the PDP to dump his party and come to the APC.

 Senator Ekweremadu was re-elected on the platform of PDP in 2015, to represent the people of Enugu West and he later emerged the Deputy Senate President of the 8th Assembly in an overwhelming election.
Ike Ekweremadu was also the Deputy Senate President in the 6th and 7th Senate under the leadership of Distinguished Senator David Mark.
