He said,”In all of these, however, let it be known that no amount of intimidation or harassment will deter Senator Ekweremadu from carrying out the constitutionally prescribed duties, for which on June 9, 2015, PDP and APC Senators willingly elected him in the full glare of the world to perform.”

In a statement signed by the media Adviser to the Deputy President of the Senate, Uche Anichukwu, Ekweremadu noted that since his invitation to the Police Headquarters, he has received numerous calls and messages from well meaning Nigerians, elder statesmen, Governors, Distinguished Senators and Honourable Members of the House of Representatives across party lines, concerned members of the international community, youth and women organisations, royal fathers, and Civil Society Organisatons, among others, who have continued to express utter dismay and concern over the unfolding drama in which his life and liberty are being threatened by desperate politicians.
