The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has debunked reports that he is considering leaving the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Ekweremadu, took to his Facebook page to make the clarification on his political future, on Wednesday morning.
He wrote: “I am presently out of the country on a pre-scheduled engagement.
“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.
“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 am very grateful to God for this.
“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.
“I am grateful to you – members of my family, my friends, political associates, and admirers across Nigeria and beyond – for your uncommon concern. I am indeed humbled by your kind words of solidarity and support.
“Please, rest assured that I am still in the PDP.”
Post-Nigeria recalls, that there were reports on Monday, that Ekweremadu was under pressure to leave the PDP.
Part of the reasons for the rumoured defection, was the manner in which the party chose its Vice Presidential Candidate, without considering him.
It is believed that Ekweremadu lobbied to be the running mate to Atiku Abubakar, the PDP Presidential Candidate, in the 2019 general elections.
However, Atiku eventually chose Peter Obi, as his running mate.
