“Accept NASS Election Outcome in Good Faith” –Ekweremadu Urges APC

Third time Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has implored the All Progressives Congress, APC, to accept the outcome of the election that resulted in the heated controversy over the emergence of  the new leadership of the National Assembly.

The reelected Deputy Senate President stressed “no political party is bigger than Nigeria.”

Ekweremadu also gave the assurance that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its members in the national assembly will corporate with President Buhari’s government to move Nigeria forward.

The Deputy Senate President spoke on Saturday, June 13,  in Enugu when he was received by his constituency and supporters in acknowledgment of his victory in returning as Deputy President of the Senate.

He said: “We have no regret, Igbos have no regret for the way they voted; if they have the opportunity tomorrow they will do it again. We are convinced we voted rightly, and because we believe we are part and parcel of this country, we believe what we got is within our right.

“So we expect that APC should be able to accommodate the people of South South as they form their government, because don’t forget that Buhari got about 15 million votes; we have more than 150 million Nigerians, so he is not the president of 15 million people; the rest of the people must be accommodated.

The Legislator stressed that all parties must work together for the good of Nigeria and also in ensuring that the dividends of democracy are delivered to the citizenry.
