Ekweremadu will lose seat to APC candidate says Okorocha

26 July 2016, 14:29

Owerri - Gov Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said the position of Deputy Senate President which is being occupied by Ike Ekweremadu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is under threat, reports Punch

He said in no distant time, Ekweremadu will be replaced with Benjamin Uwajumogu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who won the senatorial rerun election for Okigwe senatorial seat on Saturday.

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.
