No Gang Up Can Remove Saraki, Ekweremadu, PDP Senators Warn APC
SENATORS from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterdays warned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to desist from honouring any plot to unseat the newly elected leaders of the senate, warning that the PDP would not yield to any gang up against both Senate president Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
The PDP senator representing Edo Central, Clifford Ordia who spoke yesterday in Abuja in reaction to a statement credited to former Kano State governor, Senator Rabiu Kwakwanso and other aggrieved interests groups, noted that the emergence of the two leaders was not faulty and followed the due process as provided by laws governing the Nigerian Senate while submitting that the emergence of the two senate leaders was divine.
Ordia, who assured that the PDP has resolved to support the Senate leadership, reminded politicians that the era of imposition was over and warned those who are plotting their ouster to either accept their emergence or maintain their peace.
Speaking specifically in defence of Ekweremadu who has come under severe attacks from APC leaders, Ordia said PDP senators will not fold their hands and allow APC losers remove him.
Ordia equally re-echoed the need to give the National Assembly ample freedom to operate without undue interference from party leaders.
According to him, elections are over and the time has come to begin to fulfil campaign promises. ‘’We have finished the elections.
At this time, political parties should allow their elected representatives to begin work and deliver on their campaign promises.
We have a lot of things to do and the time is short. We have the Boko Haram menace, dwindling revenue, high rate of crime, poor state of the economy, unemployment among graduates and a host of other problems. We must hit the ground running,’’ the Edo lawmaker noted.
