Leave Ekweremadu alone, face your serial fumbles - PDP

The opposition Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has asked the Federal Government to leave the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, alone and concentrate on what it calls its serial fumbles.
It described the perse­cution of Ekweremadu as the height of intoler­ance and executive ex­cesses unwarranted and inexcusable in a democ­racy.
In a press statement signed by the PDP Na­tional Caretaker Com­mittee’s Spokesman, Prince Dayo Adey­eye, the party said that Ekweremadu and the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki are pres­ently facing court case on alleged forgery of Senate Rules.

The party pointed out that Ekweremadu is not the stumbling block of the ruling All Progres­sives Congress (APC), adding that the opposi­tion lawmakers, includ­ing Senator Ekwerema­du has provided a very responsible opposition, supporting the govern­ment and overlooking its serial fumbles.
“We wish to remind the APC that the Nation­al Assembly is a separate arm of government cre­ated by the constitution, not an arm of the execu­tive or extension of the APC’s party secretariat.
“We totally align with the separate resolutions of the Senate and House of Representatives on June 21, 2016 to the ef­fect that our democracy is in grave danger.
“We support the call on members of the In­ternational community, the media, and the civil society to help arrest this scary deterioration of our nascent democracy and democratic values before it is too late”, it said.
