Governor Rochas Okorocha has told Senator Ike Ekweremadu that he will ensure he loses his position as Deputy Senate President.
According to Okorocha, the Deputy Senate President’s seat was allocated to Igbos and Benjamin will become the only Igbo APC senator in the hallowed chamber. He said thisthis confidently after the just concluded rerun election which saw APC’s Benjamin Uwajumogu trump other contenders for the Okigwe Senatorial district.
According to reports, Okorocha said that the position of Senator Ike Ekweremadu as the Deputy Senate President is at the moment under heavy threat and in no distant time the APC senator in-waiting from Imo State, Benjamin Uwajumogu, will take over the seat.
“Before now, APC could not produce a senator from the South-East zone, That was why Senator Ekweremadu knowing that such a development was not only feasible but inevitable fully funded the candidate of the PDP in the re-run senatorial poll in Okigwe zone”. He said
