Ekweremadu accepts DSP nomination, warns colleagues not to vote mace snatchers


By Shola Abayomi.

Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has accepted his nomination for Deputy Senate Presidency.

Ekweremadu was nominated by Enugu-North lawmaker-elect, Senator Chukwuka Utazi, and supported by Rose Okoh of Cross-River North.

Addressing his colleagues after his nomination, he asked them not to vote for mace snatchers, an indirect reference to his rival, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.

He warned his colleagues not to encourage injustice and illegality and vote their conscience.

Senator Ekweremadu represents Enugu-West senatorial district, and was Deputy Senate President from 2007-2011, 2011-2015 and 2015-2019.
