YES!! Ekweremadu Is A Blessing To Buhari – Akpabio

Former Akwa Ibom state Governor, now Senator, Godswill Akpabio, has said that the emergence of Senator Ike Ekweremadu as the Deputy Senate President is a blessing to the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He disclosed this shortly after a meeting with the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja.
The former Akwa Ibom state governor said the emergence of an opposition member as deputy president of the senate would ensure that issues before the legislature were examined in a more holistic approach.
This, he said, would place the 8th Senate above the previous ones in terms of performance and quality of legislation.
He said: "I think the development is very good for democracy because Ekweremadu was freely elected by senators.

"But the major thing is that he was voted for across party lines. That's the way the Senate wanted it. They want an experienced person to work with the Senate President and they want a very stable Senate. They want a Senate that will be productive, a Senate that will have serious continuity.
"And I think it is good for politics and is also good for President Buhari, that at the end of the day, we have a Deputy Senate President who has been there before, who is not from the APC so that we can look at things from a holistic point of view, from a national perspective and not always through party binoculars,"  he added.
Meanwhile, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has began to probe former Governor Godswill Akpabio over the alleged fraud of N108.1billion of Akwa Ibom state funds.‎
