Ekweremadu explains why APC is after him

01 August 2016, 14:38

Enugu - Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu on Sunday said the only reason why the All Progressives Congress- led federal government is after him is because of his emer­gence as the Deputy Presi­dent of the Senate against the wishes of the powers that be, reports Sun

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Ekweremadu and two others are standing trial at the FCT High Court over forgery of the senate rules, according to News 24.

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Oyegun recently revealed that the party is still bitter at the emergence of Ekweremadu as the Deputy Senate President.
