Ohanaeze youths threaten Gov Okorocha over Ekweremadu

With the growing agitation for the removal of the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, allegedly championed by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Council has warned that those behind the plot will be declared persona non grata in Igbo land.
According to the youth arm of the apex body of Ndigbo, those threatening the office of Ekweremadu as the Deputy Senate President, would be resisted by Igbos.
The group, in a statement by its  Abuja Coordinator and Liaison Officer for the Northern Region, Hon. Obasi Ogbonnaya, said: “Nigerians from all works of life are already comfortable with the leadership of the Senate and those plotting to threaten the Senate leadership especially the office of the Deputy Senate President occupied by Senator Ike Ekweremadu should shelve such move as it will surely fail”.
The statements reads in part: “The South East is also comfortable with Senator Ekweremadu and his achievements in the Senate.
“His Constituency in Enugu East Senatorial zone and the entire South East are feeling his impact.
“We have gotten information that some hatchet persons from the South East APC have been busy lobbying the Senate membership and the Presidency to lend their support to the devilish plan to threaten the office of the Senate President. We warn such people to desist from such ill-fated moves as it is bound to fail.
“The fact that there is now a APC Senator from the South East which is however still subject to litigations at the tribunals does not in any way make such persons to begin to try the impossible as the South East and Nigerians will resist that. Of course the Senate is made up of cerebral and patriotic minds that will not lend themselves to any such act.
“We warn busy body persons of South East extraction who may lend themselves to be used for any such unpatriotic move to prepare to face the wrath of Ndigbo and Nigerians. Such persons will be declared persona non grata in Igbo land”.
