Ekweremadu Pledges To Retire From Senate In 2023

Deputy President of the Senate, Chief Ike Ekweremadu says he will retire from the Senate in 2023.

As such, the lawmaker said that he will no longer seek for re-election to the Red Chambers.

Ekweremadu, who is representing Enugu West in the National Assembly announced this on Sunday in Enugu during his 57th birthday celebration.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the senator who is completing his fourth tenure in the NASS was reelected for a fifth term during the just concluded general elections.

The lawmaker said it was time to quit the legislature, adding that his remaining time in the NASS would afford him time to complete ongoing projects in his constituency.

He said that a new breed politician with shared visions would take over from him at the expiration of the fifth term.

Ekweremadu said that his 16 years sojourn in the NASS had been immensely beneficial to his constituents as it had been a harvest of projects.

He thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for his support through the various projects being executed in his constituency.

Ekweremadu, who traced his political evolution from his time as president general of his town union, said that his political career had not always been smooth.

He said that his life had been a product of divine grace having passed through political persecution and vicissitude of life.

“I have been scorched and bruised and in all of these, God protected me. This will be my last time as a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.

Ekweremadu said that he may have offended some people in the course of his political career, adding that such people should forgive him.

Earlier, the Chairman of the occasion, Bishop Emmanuel Chukwuma described the lawmaker as a perfect gentleman.

Chukwuma said that Ekweremadu had provided leadership at all levels of his political life.

NAN further reports that the occasion also marked the 25th wedding anniversary of the lawmaker with his wife, Mrs Nwanneka Ekweremadu.

Senator Ike Ekweremmadu on two occasions led constitution review committee that toured the 6 geopolitical zones and squandered billions of Naira, achieving nothing signficant. They wanted to embark on another review under Buhari's watch but they lost their courage mid way. To save their face they congregated somewhere in Lagos, went through previous reports and compiled another that once again achieved nothing significant.

Happy birthday 'lucky man'.

There are 8term senators in the US Senate. There are senators who stay in the US Senate till death. The recent was senator McCain who was legislating even in his seek bed.
There is a supreme Court judge in the US who spent more time in the hospital than the bench but she still refuse to leave.
Holding on to power is everywhere not only in Nigeria.
There is also senator Amosun who left the nass to become governor and going back after 8yrs of being governor.
There is also lawan who has been there since his birth

See, what laws are they making in the Senate that never finish in 20 years.
The laws that create bicameral legislature and also makes a lawmaker has more than 4 year tenure is a fraud and anti-people.
These laws makes a lawmaker ride in Ferrari while people languish in poverty in his constituency.
HEAVEN SAVE US.

He only said a country likely Nigeria that depends on only oil should not encourage electric cars. You are the clueless one if you can't see the reason behind his statement
