A former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu said on Sunday there was no rift between him and Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
Ekweremadu, who disclosed this while featuring in a radio programme in Enugu, said the relationship between him and Governor Ugwuanyi was beyond friendship.
According to the ex-deputy Senate president, he and the governor were like brothers.
He said the relationship between them dated back to several years when he was into private practice as a lawyer and insurance operator.
He dismissed any rumour of rift between them and urged the people of Enugu State to discountenance such rumours.
Ekweremadu said: “The Enugu State governor, His Excellency is not just a friend, he is my brother. He is my ally and also my partner. I have known him for many years. Our relationship is made in heaven.”
