The Deputy Senate President made the call on Wednesday, July 1, 2015, while hosting members of the Coalition of Election Observers, who visited his office in Abuja.

Ekweremadu said:

“We are about to form legislative agenda for the 8th Senate. This will include electoral reforms. As I said in the beginning, we have finished with politics, what is remaining now is governance and this country belongs to all of us and the constituents are not interested in whether you are APC or PDP.”

“What they want is good governance and we must unite as a people to give Nigeria good governance. The issue of bickering and differences does not have any place in the minds of our people. What they want is performance, what they want to see is good governance and we must unite.”

The APC has been unsettled by Ekweremadu’s emergence as Deputy Senate President with a party leader saying recently that his occupancy of the position would cause problems for President Muhammadu Buhari.

Ekweremadu was elected on June 9 after Senate President, Bukola Saraki defied the APC to contest and win the position after garnering most of his votes from Senator-members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
