Ekweremadu advised to withdraw letters sent abroad
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."
