PDP condemns name for Sen. Ekweremadu to defect to APC

The Peoples Democratic celebration (PDP) on Thursday condemned the decision on Sen. Ike Ekweremadu to illness to the All Progressives Congress (APC) to maintain Deputy President of Senate role. The PDP made the condemnation in a statement through the country wide publicity Secretary of the country wide Caretaker Committee, Mr Dayo Adeyeye, on Thursday in Abuja.

The party stated that its attention become drawn to a announcement credited to Sen. Kabiru Marafa wherein he recommended Ekweremadu to disorder to the APC for you to retain his function. It described the call as unconstitutional, undemocratic, including that the phase of the 1999 constitution which Marafa quoted as backing his recommendation to Ekweremadu was unfaithful.

Mafara became quoting as pronouncing “i am the usage of this medium to call on Ekweremadu to truely decamp. section sixty eight(G) of the 1999 charter captures this.


there may be no phase or clause of the 1999 constitution (As Amended) that provides that one should be a member of the ruling celebration before he might be elected into any function within the Senate or the residence of Representatives.

equally, it is very distasteful and uncharitable for any senator to face at the floor of the hallowed chamber and ask his colleague to violate the charter by move-carpeting from his personal birthday party to join the ruling celebration. 
it is Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and now not Senate of the APC,’ the PDP stated.

It brought that it became laughable for Marafa to quote the internal troubles within the PDP as a cause for Ekweremadu to disorder to the APC.

“For the umpteenth time, allow us to reiterate that there is no faction in the PDP.

“a party is only factionalized when its organs are in disarray, however this is distinctive within the PDP wherein all of the organs are intact, behind the countrywide Caretaker Committee under the chairmanship of Sen. Makarfi.

“a mere rebellion by way of a small hobby group inside the party can not be noted factionalisation of the celebration, ‘’ the announcement stated.
