ENUGU—Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has called on clergymen to always speak out to ensure that  government was held accountable to the people.

Ekweremadu argued that government could not  be at its best when everyone was singing its praises, adding that when people learn to speak out, especially the clergy, government would be on its toes.
In his words: “People like you should always speak out to ensure that government is held accountable.

Government cannot perform maximally when everybody is singing praises.”
Senator Ekweremadu spoke when he visited the Bishop of Nsukka Diocese, Anglican Communion, Right Reverend Aloysius Agbo, who celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Anglican Diocese of Nsukka.

Ekweremadu used the opportunity to thank the clergy in Nigeria for their prayers and assured them that those of them in government would do everything to ensure that the clergy was proud of them.
Responding, Bishop Agbo praised Ekweremadu for the quality representation he was offering the people, especially the scholarships to indigent students and the adult literacy programme.
