Defection: I still Remain In PDP, says Ekweremadu
I Still Remain In PDP – Ike Ekweremadu
“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.
