Ek­w­ere­madu ad­vised to with­draw let­ters sent abroad

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Tony Adibe, Enugu

The Deputy Pres­i­dent of the Se­nate, Ike Ek­w­ere­madu, has been ad­vised to with­draw the re­cent let­ters he wrote to the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity be­cause the is­sues he raised were the in­ter­nal af­fairs of Nige­ria.

The Vice Chair­man of the APC in Enugu State, Chief Anike Nwoga, who gave the ad­vice at the week­end, em­pha­sised that Ek­w­ere­madu’s let­ter had tar­nished the im­age of Nige­ria and that of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari.

Ek­w­ere­madu had writ­ten the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity over his on­go­ing forgery trial along­side the Se­nate Pres­i­dent, Bukola Saraki, and two oth­ers.

Nwoga spoke at a rally held by mem­bers of the APC in Awgu town, Enugu State, Satur­day.

The APC rally was held shortly after a pro­ces­sion of proEk­w­ere­madu group, un­der the ban­ner of Enugu West Stake­hold­ers, led by Igwe Pro­fes­sor Sam Uk­pabi, a for­mer direc­tor-gen­eral of the Nige­ria De­fence Academy (NDA) and the na­tive ruler of Uk­panku com­mu­nity in An­inri coun­cil of Enugu State.

Nwoga said: “By this un­war­ranted let­ter, he (Ek­w­ere­madu) has des­e­crated the con­sti­tu­tion, tar­nished the im­age of Nige­ria and by ex­ten­sion our dear pres­i­dent. As a se­nior lawyer, we had ex­pected him to main­tain his ear­lier state­ment that he has faith in Almighty God and the Nige­rian courts."
