Politics Africa : We are hunted because we demanded true democracy for Nigeria – Ekweremadu


We are hunted because we demanded true democracy for Nigeria – Ekweremadu
Deputy Senate President, Chief Ike Ekweremadu, has revealed that the major reason himself and some others are being hunted by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government is si9mply because they demanded for true democracy in Nigeria.
The lawmaker made this statement in Enugu after thousands of residents marched through the streets to show anger over the siege laid on his residence and that of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.


Ekweremadu noted that the travails he had faced in recent times was over his insistence that the rule of law should prevail in the country.
“We need a country where court order will be obeyed. We are looking for a situation where people will be free to do their businesses anywhere in Nigeria without molestation,” he said.


Talking on the implication of keeping him indoors on Tuesday, Ekweremadu said that if they had succeeded in caging him and the Senate President, they would have tried to remove them.

He added that the evil intent of the siege was to prevent the mass defection of the lawmakers that cross-carpeted.
