He said it would be an aberration for Ekweremadu to retain his seat as the Deputy Senate President, after Uwajumogu had joined the Senate, reports Vanguard
Okorocha, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, said Ekweremadu himself had known and feared the possibility of losing his seat, that was why he relocated to Imo State three days to the re-run election.
Okorocha described the victory of the APC in the rerun poll as a victory for the whole of South-East APC in particular and the people of the geo-political zone in general.
