Ekweremadu talks tough; Nobody Can Remove Me from Office

Ike Ekweremadu, deputy Senate president, on Saturday shrugged off his ongoing trial at the Federal High Court, Abuja, for alleged forgery of the Standing Rules of the Senate, insisting that his traducers would meet a brickwall as nobody would remove him from office.

Ekweremadu spoke as over 30 traditional rulers from his Enugu West senatorial zone presented him with the traditional ofor, a symbol of authority, standing in unison with him in his trial. They vowed that no matter the efforts to remove him, he would emerge stronger from his travails.

Ekweremadu spoke at his Ikeoha Foundation Adult Literacy Day and 2015/2016 Scholarship and Bursary award ceremony, his pet project, at Ezeagu Council headquarters, Aguobu-Owa, where over N40 million was spent on scholarships and bursary to over 400 indigent undergraduates and 250 sewing and grinding machines presented to widows.

“I decided to handover N400,000 to each of the 20 students as scholarships for their education for four years. Ordinarily, it would have been N100,000 each year but since am not sure if I will continue as Deputy Senate President until tomorrow, we have decided to give it out at once to ensure that nothing happens to the education of these young ones.

“Whether they succeed in chasing me out or not, you will continue to go to school. But, I have to assure you that nobody will remove me. It is not by power or by might but by the Grace of God. Our trajectory is from God. Nobody will do us anything. No matter what is happening, I can assure you that we shall survive them all,” he said.

God will reward him abundantly for his kindness on these indigents students & will still reward him for his role in & outside the Senate, his conscience should be his compass.
