The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu has pledged his commitment in ensuring the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 general elections. 

In a statement through his special adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu, Senator Ekweremadu denied that PDP was divided ahead of the presidential election as reported.

He said, “I have held separate meetings with Peter Obi and the Chairman, South-East Governors’  Forum, Dave Umahi, with a view to working out strategies for the success of our party and our candidates in the elections.

“We will also organise a meeting of the South-East PDP stakeholders at the weekend.

“I have no doubt that South-East leaders will deliver the region overwhelmingly to the PDP and I expect that other leaders will also do the same in their geopolitical zones.

“After the PDP lost the presidency and its majority status at the National Assembly in 2015, I made it clear that I would stand by the party, no matter what.

“It took other party stakeholders and I a lot of efforts, sacrifices, soul-searching and painstaking negotiations to hold the party together and rebuild it. 

“If I did not abandon the PDP at its darkest hour, it does not make the slightest sense to say that I abandoned it now that its sun is rising again.”
