Remain in PDP, Do not infest us with your Problems – APC to Ekweremadu

The Enugu State chap­ter of the All Progres­sives Congress (APC) has urged the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, to maintain his stand as one of the pillars of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and remain in the party.


Through its Publicity Secre­tary, Mrs Kate Offor, the APC said that it is in a position to overrun the PDP in the 2019 general elections in Enugu without Sen Ekweremadu.

There have been insinua­tions in various quarters that Ekweremadu is under pres­sure to join the APC. In fact, an APC Senator from Zam­fara State, Kabiru Marafa, has called on Ekweremadu to de­fect from PDP to APC if he still wants to retain his seat as Deputy Senate President.

Offor said that the APC in Enugu does not want Ekwer­emadu in its fold and boasted that the party will win all the elections in 2019 without Ekweremadu.

She said: “Whatever is the position of the 1999 Consti­tution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, we want him to re­main in PDP. We wish to make it very clear that Ekweremadu is an unwanted guest in Enugu State APC.

“Let him stay and salvage the inferno festering in the PDP. We don’t want one party state. Most importantly we don’t want him to infest and transfer confusion into APC, his trademark in the PDP from the time of Governor Chima­roke Nnamani in 1999 till date,” she said.
