Allegation Against Me Is Like Saying Obasanjo Faked 1999 Constitution – Ekweremadu

Nigeria’s deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, Wednesday, said he didn’t tinker with senate standing rules, as alleged. Ekweremadu (PDP, Enugu) said he had ceased to be a senator when the amendment was made. Uche Anichukwu, Ekweremadu’s media adviser, said this on Ray Power Radio’s “Political Platform”. The spokesman said enquirers should look to the National Assembly bureaucracy on the said amendment. He added that accusing Ekweremadu of tinkering with the senate rules is “like saying that former President Olusegun Obasanjo forged the 1999 Constitution upon which he was inaugurated as a president”. He explained that the said “amendment is a new document with a life of its own. It couldn’t have been done by any member of the 8th Senate. It is just impossible for it to have been made by Ekweremadu. I guess it is all politics.”
