The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has called on the Federal Government to get capable hands who will bring the economy back on its feet.

The Deputy Senate President also stated that there is hunger in Nigeria.

According to him, Nigeria’s 56th independence celebration should be used to reflect soberly on the challenges we are facing.

Ekweremadu also said the government should return to the path of true federalism, as planned by our founding fathers.

He said “This 56th Independence Anniversary calls for sober reflection.  No people can make progress unless they retrace their steps back to where the rain started beating them. Nigeria, at formation, had a building plan, which was based on true federalism as covenanted by our founding fathers at various conferences leading up to independence.

“For as long as we followed that plan, we prospered. But, once we discarded the building plan, dissembled the inherited structures and legacies and began to undermine the fabrics of equity, justice, balance, healthy competition and economic prosperity that was ingrained therein, we charted our route to the current perdition.”

Ike Ekweremadu recently called on South-East Governors to enact laws restricting the movement of Fulani Herdsmen to ranches.
