Ekweremadu must decamp to APC to save his seat – Senator Marafa insists

A strong member of the Senate Unity Forum, Senator Kabir Marafa had an interesting chat with Punch on the goings on in the senate and the move of the APC members to take full control. Below is a brief excerpt for your reading pleasure:

With the removal of Senator Ali Ndume as Senate Leader and the position given to Senator Ahmed Lawan, can you now say that the APC has forgiven Saraki for hijacking the leadership of the Senate from the party?

I am not an official of the APC, so I don’t think it is fair for you to ask me that question; you should ask the APC leadership that question. But as a party member, I feel it can be taken for granted because the party said it by itself; it wrote a letter (saying) that we have accepted you but we want you to do this. So, if he does that, automatically, it shows that he’s been forgiven.

If there is anything now, the remaining problem is about what we do with our Deputy Senate President — my leader and my boss. I will tell him that he should exploit the provision of our Constitution — Section 68(g) — that says when there is a rift in a political party, members can defect to another party. Let me use the opportunity to call on my leader and my boss, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, to please defect to the APC and that will seal the whole thing and there will never be a problem since we will become one. That is the only seat we are contesting because the seat belongs to us and, Ekweremadu, is from the Peoples Democratic Party. Now, if he just defect to our party, shikenah! (That’s all.) Everything becomes one.

Is your next move for Ekweremadu’s seat?I am telling you that he has the opportunity now. Let him just defect. The beauty of any political party is the people. If you can join us, join us. We want more people. Instead of moving against his seat, let him join us.

What if he refuses to join the APC?He will! I am using this medium now to tell him to please join the APC. It is when he says he is not joining (the party) that you can come back to say Ike has refused to join the APC, what are you going to do?
