Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has raised the alarm that some clandestine efforts were being carried out by some political elements to publish false and defamatory information against him with the aim of forcing him out of office.

Speaking in a statement issued by his media aide, Uche Anichukwu, on Tuesday, Ekweremadu said that those wanting to get rid of him were making efforts, including scavenging through Senate accounts and committees he has served on, with the aim of misrepresenting information, maligning and running him out of office by hook or crook or force him to resign from his position.

“It will interest Nigerians to know that the Office (of the Deputy Senate President) has it on good authority that the elements behind this unscrupulous push are the same people whose recent staunch defence of bipartisan leadership in the legislature as rightly being consistent with the 1999 Constitution (as amended), the presidential system of government, and our history is in the public domain.

“The Deputy President of the Senate is ever committed to contributing his quota towards ensuring that the Federal Government of Nigeria provides good governance that caters for the wellbeing of the good people of Nigeria, for it remains the common and primary calling of all of those in government, irrespective of party affiliation.

“However, the Deputy President of the Senate also remains committed to the institution of the National Assembly and independence of the legislature; hence he will not allow himself to be intimidated or stampeded out of Office,” Ekweremadu said.
