The Deputy Senate President, IKE EKWEREMADU, has said he will not resign from the office despite the insistence of the Ruling All Progressives Congress.
EKWEREMADU who spoke through his media aide, ISMAIL OMIPIDAN, told correspondents that he had no reason to step aside as the Deputy Senate President as he was duly elected into the office.
He recalled that several public office-holders had defected from the PDP to the APC without any interference from the latter.
Also speaking, one of the aides of the Senate President, BUKOLA SARAKI, who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that the APC currently lacked the popularity in the Senate to unseat EKWEREMADU.
The aide noted that removing EKWEREMADU would be easier for the APC if all its members were in unison, unlike their PDP counterparts who were united.
