The All Progressives Congress, APC, Youths Renaissance has called for the resignation of Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
North Central Coordinator of the group, Hon. Abubakar Yakubu in a statement accused the Senator of inciting Nigerians against President Muhammadu Buhari for blaming the president for the fall of the Naira.
He said, “Senator Ekweremadu mischievously forgot that exchange rate is subject to the forces of demand and supply, which means, the higher the demand for dollar, the more scarce it becomes.
“Instead of blaming the corrupt and clueless PDP-led Federal Government which Dollarised our Naira and unofficially made it a legal tender in the country, Senator Ekeremadu is erosively blaming our dear President for the black hole economy he inherited from the sacked PDP-government.
“By his latest action, Ekweremadu has confirmed our suspicion that he is there to execute an agenda that is detrimental to our great party.
“As number five citizen in the country and senior Senator, what stops Ekweremadu from making laws that will reverse the downward trend in our economic outlook?
“Because he has shown his true identity as an enemy within, his continuous stay in the office of the Deputy Senate President is no longer acceptable to us.
“We therefore demand for his resignation within one month or be disgraced out of the office”.
