My political future depends on God, my people — Ekweremadu

ENUGU — Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has said his continuous stay in the National Assembly was at the mercy of God and the people that elected him, noting that his political future depended on them and not on any single human being

Apparently reacting to speculations within the PDP circle in the state that some powerful politicians in the state had plotted to retire all the current National Assembly members from the state who are doing second term and above, Ekweremadu expressed happiness with the quality of representation and achievements by the federal lawmakers representing Enugu West senatorial zone

He said the two members of the House of Representatives, Tobias Okechukwu (Awgu-Aninri-Oji River federal constituency), and Ogbuefi Ozongbachi, Chairman, House Committee on Works (Udi-Ezeagu federal constituency), had given a good account of themselves by the number and quality of projects they had attracted to the area.

The Deputy Senate President and Speaker of ECOWAS Parliament, who made the remarks when stakeholders and leaders from Ezeagu Local Government Area of the state, comprising 20 wards and over 40 autonomous communities, paid him a solidarity visit in his residence in Enugu, said nobody would change a winning team.
The stakeholders had during the visit, pledged to support Ekweremadu in whatever ambition he chose to pursue in 2015, saying he had distinguished himself as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Deputy Senate President said all they were asking for was a level-playing ground in any election, so the people could decide the fate of any aspirant or candidate
He noted, however, that anytime the people said he had represented them enough and he should come back, he would do so immediately and join hands to support whoever they wanted.
