Senator Ekweremadu Returns To Senate

The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was about 12:01 on Monday, declared winner of the Enugu West Senatorial seat in a landslide victory.






Declaring the result at Awgu, the Returning Officer, Prof. Douglas Nwabueze, said the Senator polled a total of 86,088 votes to beat his closest rival, Mrs. Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who polled 15,187 votes.


According to the results, APC and other political parties recorded zero votes at Polling Unit 003, Amachalla, Mpu, Aninri LGA, where the Senator voted in the presidential and National Assembly elections held on Saturday.


Reacting to his victory, Ekweremadu expressed gratitude to his constituents for re-electing him into the Senate for a fifth time, noting that it was a record of its own in the Eastern part of the country.


He said: “I am not taking this election for granted especially by the unprecedented nature of my election. This is the first time within this part of Nigeria that someone would be elected consecutively for five times into the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It has never happened and I am not taking it for granted. I indeed feel very humbled and I give all the glory and thanks to the Almighty God who has made it possible.


“I must also thank my friends and associates, the great people of Enugu West – very industrious people, highly civilized people, highly accomplished people, very educated people, who in spite of the fact that I am just a little boy from Mpu have given me this unprecedented opportunity.


“Recall also that about a year ago, we went through a lot of storm for the major part of 2018. So, nobody believed that a day like this would come when I would stand for an election and be declared winner. So, only God can make that possible.


“I believe that what is expected of us this time is to give back to the society that has given us this opportunity and those that have given us this confidence to ensure that this confidence is not misplaced. So, a lot is lying on our shoulders. I would like to say clearly that we will not disappoint Nigerians”.
