Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has asked his constituents and supporters not to lose sleep over the motion ex-parte for assets forfeiture filed against him by the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property.

He said he could neither be intimidated nor silenced in the face of obvious oppression and intimidation of Nigerians.

He stated this when the people of Mgbidi Community, hometown of the dismissed former Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Innocent Umezulike, paid him a solidarity visit over his travails in the hands of the Federal Government.

Ekweremadu told his constituents from Awgu Local Council of Enugu State, who were led by the traditional ruler, Igwe Pius Uzochukwu, that the latest allegations would fail like the previous ones as they were not true.

He said: “I thank you for the show of solidarity. I have been inundated with calls, messages and visits by concerned constituents and well-wishers within and outside the country.

“But, there is nothing to worry about because the entire thing is a well-oiled propaganda on lies and doctored will that include fictitious property, just to cow me.

“It is also about 2019 politics. However, I will not be cowed or relent in my efforts to serve you and the country. So, please sleep with your two eyes closed. Tell others too that there is nothing to worry about.

“I am also happy that more people, courageous and well-meaning Nigerians are speaking up on the state of the nation. Rest assured that I will not refrain from speaking up in defence of democracy and the well being of Nigerians.

“As I said in the Senate a few weeks ago, it is not about us, who are privileged, but about the country and future generations. So, I can’t afford to be intimidated or distracted. Like the previous attempts to silence me, this one too shall fail.”

He assured the people of Mgbidi of a continued cordial relationship and development projects, as he had nothing against them.
