Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, at the weekend stated that he was not being investigated by the police in connection with the forgery of Senate Standing Rules.

Ekweremadu made this clarification in his remarks during the fundraising dinner for the proposed New Secretariat of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State.

He explained that the allegations against him in the Senate were about non-existent issues and had nothing to do with his position and progress of PDP in the struggle for political supremacy in the country.

Ekweremadu maintained that the leadership of PDP has always planned ways of ensuring that it restores its leading position and urged all stakeholders to make useful contributions to the realization of this goal.

“I am sure you are seeing and hearing what they say in thea. Most of those things are certainly not true. No Police is investigating me because there is nothing to investigate.

“It is only APC and their media that are investigating me. What is happening in the Senate is purely the Senate’s affair and will remain as that,” Ekweremadu said.

Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi said his administration would continue to live up to expectations of the people to further project the democratic principles of the party and make it remain strong.

Also speaking, former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, urged members of the party not to be deterred by the challenges of the last election but to remain unflinching in their support for PDP to sustain the party’s strength.

Nnamani who is a member of PDP Board of Trustees, noted that PDP ought to be very strong as a party but things went wrong and therefore urged the leadership of the party to correct the errors of the past.

Meanwhile, a total sum of N160 million was realized at the fundraising dinner for the proposed new Secretariat
