Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, yesterday, expressed dismay over the incessant killings going on in the country. He said he longs for a peaceful country where people can go about their businesses without molestation.
Ekweremadu, who is a former speaker of the ECOWAS Parliament, spoke when thousands of his supporters trooped out to receive him in Enugu after the alleged blockade of his residence by some security operatives in Abuja.
He expressed displeasure in the daily loss of lives in many parts of country, stressing that he wanted a situation where people will be free to do their business. He also frowned at the disobedience to court orders and rule of law in the country while insisting that dialogue remains a part of democracy.
Ekweremadu, who represents Enugu West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, said it was unfortunate that those of them who want the right thing to be done were being molested.
He, however vowed that he will continue to struggle for the right things to be done despite the persecution and expressed hope that in the end, they will emerged victors.
The lawmaker thanked his supporters for their solidarity, saying that he decided to come home to show himself to them to show them that he is still alive. He specifically expressed his gratitude to Apex Igbo Social Organisation and Ohanaeze Ndigbo, for their support.
The Enugu State chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Alex Ogbonna, while addressing newsmen, appealed to the government to allow opposition to function in the country’s democracy.
He expressed dismay that Ekweremadu and others were being persecuted because they are doing the right thing. “We have gathered here in solidarity. We are with him, he is doing what he is supposed to,” he stated.
