Ekweramadu says Nigerians will beg PDP to come back in 2019

Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu today in Enugu expressed his worry over the poor situation of Nigeria’s economy. He said that business may collapse within the next six months. Ekweremadu, who spoke at the meeting of the South-East caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, had shown that it was not a good manager of the economy, stressing that “there has been an unchecked downfall in our currency; Naira has depreciated to the point of N260 to a dollar; it has never happened in the history of this country”.

This is also as a motion for vote of confidence was passed on him and the members of the South-East Zonal Working Committee of the party. The motion moved by the Deputy Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon. Chuchu Onyema, was seconded by the Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly, Hon. Martins Azubuike.


The meeting was equally attended by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State as well as the Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State and several National Assembly members. The Deputy Senate President in his speech, cautioned that if something was not done urgently, the Onitsha and Alaba markets would close down in the next six months because the traders would run out of stock.

“So many people are worried over the situation of Nigerians in the hand of the APC; I don’t know what will happen between now and 2019”. “Unless APC changes their style, Nigerians will be begging PDP to come back”.

Ekweremadu also accused President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of adopting a selective-approach in its anti-corruption war. According to him, “the fight against corruption is selective, most of them are media orchestrated; we are prepared to join hands with the government to fight corruption but it must be done in a very civilized way. Even the international community is no longer taking us serious”.
