An unlikely player has forayed into the rift between the deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu and governors in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governors, in a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, had allegedly vowed to ensure that Ekweremadu is ousted from the seat of the senate presidency.
Ekweremadu and the Senate President, Bukola Saraki have been under fire from the ruling party since 2015 when they emerged against the wishes of the party.
Saraki is believed to have fraternized with members of the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party which Ekweremadu belongs to, to attain the senate presidency.
Reacting to the alleged vow made by APC governors, veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie posted a message for Ekweremadu and the governors on his Facebook page.
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will help stabilize the economy, then, they should do all within their power to remove him.
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will stop Nigerians from losing their jobs, then,it is a task that must be done.
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will curtail Fulani Herdsmen from killing of helpless Nigerians, then, Ekweremadu should vacate both his office and the senate immediately.
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will stabilize the prices of food and common commodities in the market, then, I am joining them in asking Ekweremadu to vacate the senate.
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will make Buhari to abandon his 97% and 5% policy, stop Buhari from seeking to turn Nigeria to a fiefdom where the only capable hands are only people from a certain part of the country, then, Ekweremadu’s immediate constituency should recall him from the senate.
“But , where the reverse is true, All the APC Governors seeking Ekweremadu’s removal should tender their resignation letters and handover notes. God bless Us and God bless Nigeria.”
