Senate Deputy President Ike Ekweremadu has disavowed reports that he was planning to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
A report has it that he threatened to leave the party last week over undisclosed reasons.
However, Ekweremadu has denied claims of him leaving the party, saying, “I’m still in PDP.”
“In the past 24 hours, I have been inundated with calls from friends and political associates seeking clarification on the rumours of my departure from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which has dominated the media,” he said.
“Let it be known that my path in politics is in the hands of the Almighty God, who has indeed been very faithful and gracious to me. I’m very grateful to God for this.”
He added, “My vision in politics is a system that works for everybody, a social and political environment where everybody, every section, and every tribe not only counts but is also seen to count.
“As leaders, we must be mindful of this, for any system built on anything less will not endure.”
