With the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu may be in for a long battle.
Just recently, on Tuesday, APC governors met with President Muhammadu Buhari to demand for the removal of Ekweremadu of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the Deputy Senate President which media reported of the President’s approval.
Before the Governors’ meeting with Buhari, both APC chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha had spoken on the necessity of replacing him with an APC member with Okorocha saying that with the possibility of the Imo candidate winning in the senatorial rerun, the days of Ekweremadu as Deputy Senate President was numbered.
