The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State has said that Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu contributed to the current crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Enugu APC also called Ekweremadu a confusionist adding that he would not be welcome in the ruling party.

The comments were made by Enugu APC spokeswoman, Kate Offor after some senators urged Ekweremadu to defect to the APC or risk losing his position.

“Whatever is the position of the 1999 Constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria, we want him to remain in PDP. We wish to make it very clear that Ekweremadu is an unwanted guest in Enugu State APC. Let him stay and salvage the inferno festering in the PDP,” she said.

“We don’t want one party state. Most importantly, we don’t want him to infest and transfer confusion into APC, his trademark in the PDP from the time of Governor Chimaroke Nnamani in 1999 till date.

“The truth is that Ekweremadu contributed in no small measure to the mess PDP found itself today, via unbridled impunity and unconscionable anti-internal democracy antics. We are witnesses of how his Machiavellian tactics eclipsed democratic aspirations and infringed on the growth of democracy in Nigeria.

“For instance, as former chief of staff and later secretary to state government, his fingers, he cannot exonerate himself from the lapses of that government, which brought it to disrepute.

“Indeed Ekweremadu set the high jump, Enugu State Governor, Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Gburugburu) is facing in court today, all in a bid to feather his own political nest during the 2015 primary elections. He did same to ex-governor, Sullivan Chime, who spent four years in court,” she added.
