Leadership of the National Association of South-East Nigerian Students, NASENS, has warned the presidency and the leadership of the All of Progressives Congress, APC, against any form of threat and intimidation against the deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, saying the association would resist such attempt if not stopped.
In a statement signed by its national president, Nweli Hilary, after emergency meeting of the executives in Abakaliki at the weekend, it said the entire students of the South-East extraction urged all and sundry to withdraw every form of threat or accusations against Senator Ekweremadu, as they would no longer tolerate such threat from any quarter, be it the presidency, political party, individual or group.
The students, who condemned what they called recent threat and accusations against the deputy Senate president, urged all those concerned in the act to leave Ekweremadu alone in the interest of oneness and peace in the country.
“We further want to make clear to the general public and the entire world without fear or favour that Senator Ike Ekweremadu was duly elected as the deputy Senate president of the eighth Assembly under the standing order and rules of the National Assembly and provisions of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and according to the rule of law.”
