Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has dispelled rumours that he is unhappy with the PeoplesDemicratic Party (PDP) and has concluded plans to dump it for the ruling all Progressives Congress
In a statement made available to The Boss the Enugu State born Senator stated:
“My attention has been drawn to the orchestrated attempts by some characters to create the impression of a divided house in Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the coming presidential election.
Such characters dish out fake and divisive stories without source on a daily basis and attribute same to me. While I refuse to be distracted by such cheap blackmail, smear campaign, and extreme propaganda, it is important to reassure our supporters that the PDP is united and focused on wresting power from the All Progressives Congress, APC.
After the PDP lost the presidency and majority status at the National Assembly in 2015, I made it clear that I would stand by the party, no matter what. It took other party stakeholders and I a lot of efforts, sacrifices, soul-searching, and painstaking negotiations to hold the party together and rebuild it. If I did not abandon the PDP at its darkest hour, it does not make the slightest sense to say that I abandoned it now that its sun is rising again.”
