Senator Kabiru Marafa, an APC senator from Zamfara, had advised Ekweremadu, who represents Enugu West Senatorial Zone in the Senate, to defect to the APC if he must keep his seat as the Deputy Senate President.
But the APC in Enugu State did not welcome Marafa’s call on Ekweremadu.
Speaking with journalists in Enugu, the Publicity Secretary of the APC in Enugu State, Mrs. Kate Offor, said the Deputy Senate President was not needed in the party.
Offor said Ekweremadu should remain in the PDP, which she said he (Ekweremadu) contributed in ‘destroying’.
The Deputy Senate President would be an unwelcome guest in Enugu State APC, should he decide to join the party, Offor stressed.
“We wish to make it very clear that Ekweremadu is an unwanted guest in the Enugu State APC. Let him stay and salvage the inferno festering in the PDP,” she said.
Mrs. Offor noted that Ekweremadu would bring ‘confusion’ into the APC.
