ENUGU—SENIOR Special Assistant to Deputy Senate President, Mazi Nnanna Nze has said that acts of intimidation allegedly being unleashed on Senator Ike Ekweremadu by Federal Government agencies instead of diminishing his status, are growing his profile.
Nze said that the tactis of the siege, anti-graft invitations and other coercive methods employed to make Ekweremadu yeild to the machinations of the APC-led Federal Government were like examinations set to test one’s competence for higher classes.
He therefore asked the agencies being used as tools to reconsider their methods of operation and allow the rule of law to apply like in every decent democracy.
Nze made the remarks, weekend, when he donated a Peoples Democracy Party, PDP, 2019 Enugu West Senatorial District campaign office for Ekweremadu, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and House of Representatives member, Toby Okechukwu at Agwu.
Nze, a former chairman of Awgu Local Government Area said he had to donate the campaign office because Ekweremadu and Ugwuanyi work in synergy, complementing each other in infrastructure development and human empowerment of the people of Enugu State.
He said: “The governor is doing a lot of interesting empowerments in the state. The same goes to Ekweremadu who attracted the ongoing N16 billion Agwu ring road. The same thing is going on in all parts of Enugu West and one good thing is that the state government queues into these projects and that’s why I decided to donate a PDP campaign headquarters for the whole of Enugu West Senatorial District.”
