PDP: Trouble looms as pressure mounts on Ekweremadu to quit

Trouble is looming large in the People Democratic Party (PDP) as some political forces within the party are mounting pressure on the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, to quit the party over perceived mistreatment of the Senator.

These, competent sources say this was not unconnected with his “total sidelining in the affairs of the party immediately after the Port Harcourt Convention where Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was elected the presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 election.

Competent source and a ranking member of the National Assembly said: “The issue is not even the mishandling of the processes leading to the emergence of former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as the running mate to PDP’s presidential candidate, in which the South East leaders were totally sidelined. The issue is a deliberate attempt to sideline the Senator in the emerging scheme of things within the party.

Our source said it was part of the grand schemes by some powerful interests to humiliate and sink Ekweremadu politically.
