Nobody can remove me, says Ekweremadu
Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, on Saturday allayed fears over his continued occupation of his present office on account of his trial over alleged forgery of senate rules, insisting that nobody would remove him from office.
Ekweremadu, who carpeted the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), over what he described as “endless ill feelings” of the leadership of the party over his emergence, said nothing has happened that could make him lose sleep over the ongoing trial.
Speaking at Ezeagu, Ezeagu local government council of Enugu State during the Ikeoha Foundation, Adult Literacy Day 2015/2016 Scholarship and Bursary Award, Ekweremadu declared: “I want to assure our people that nobody will remove me. I am there not by my power or might, but by the special grace of God. It is not by our trajectory, so, they cannot do anything.”
He stated that the development shouldn’t make the people shiver; stressing it was mere imagination that was churned out to deceive Nigerians, maintaining that his emergence followed due process and the popular will of members of the Senate.
Speaking on the activities of the foundation, through which he has empowered thousands of people, including widows, within the last three years, Ekweremadu said he would continue to partner with the Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi-led administration.
“Be assured that we will continue to support you; whoever is your friend will be our friend; whoever is your enemy will have us to contend with”, he told Governor Ugwuanyi.
