Ekweremandu’s seat threatened — Okorocha

*Okorocha on a wild goose chase —Ekweremadu
By Chidi Nkwopara
OWERRI—Imo State Governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha,
says “Ike Ekweremadu’s seat as Deputy Senate President, is
now threatened, with the emergence of Benjamin
Uwajumogu in the last senatorial re-run election in the
state.”
An obviously joyous Okorocha, fired the salvo while
speaking during a victory party for members of All
Progressives Congress, APC, in the state to celebrate the
outcome of the Saturday re-run election for Okigwe
senatorial seat and the two state constituencies of Oru-East
and Oru-West.
“The position of Senator Ike Ekweremadu as the Deputy
Senate President is at the moment under heavy threat
because in no distant time, the APC Senator in waiting from
Imo State, Benjamins Uwajumogu, will take over the seat
on the ground that it is an aberration that a PDP senator
from the South-East is Deputy to an APC Senate President
because, before now, APC could not produce a senator
from the South-East zone,” Okorocha said.
Okorocha equally opined that Senator Ekweremadu knew
that such development was not only feasible but inevitable
and that was why he fully funded the PDP candidate in the
re-run senatorial poll in Okigwe zone and also re-located to
the state three days to the election date.
Okorocha on a wild goose chase
In its reaction, the Office of the Deputy President of the
Senate in a statement issued by the Special Adviser (Media)
to the Deputy President of the Senate, said it would have
“allowed the governor to continue to wallow in his
delusions and wild claims, but, considering the fact that this
is the second consecutive statement by the governor in one
week wherein he attempted to impugn the integrity and
democratic credentials of the Office and person of the
Deputy President of the Senate, we are being compelled to
set the record straight.
“The Deputy President of the Senate visited Imo State for the
last time in 2015. It is also instructive that the governor’s
claim comes on the heels of another statement by some All
Progressives Congress (APC) elements in Ezeagu Local
Government Area on Sunday where they whined bitterly
over the huge solidarity shown by the good people,
stakeholders, and traditional rulers of Enugu State to Senator
Ekweremadu during his annual Ikeoha Scholarship and
Bursary Awards/Adult Literacy Day at the Council
headquarters on the same Saturday, June 23, 2016.”
