Renowned actor, Pete Edochie has blasted the Buhari-led government and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), over their insistence on removal of Chief Ike Ekweremadu as the Deputy Senate President.
The APC leadership, including some governors elected under the party’s platform have repeatedly said the plan to remove Ekweremadu was a task that must be accomplished.
Reacting to the squabble, the respected actor in a post on his facebook wall entitled: “Pete Edochie Quotes”, slammed the Buhari led government for chasing shadows while the situation in the country worsened.
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will help stabilize the economy, then, they should do all within their power to remove him.”
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will stop Nigerians from losing their jobs, then,it is a task that must be done.”
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will curtail Fulani Herdsmen from killing of helpless Nigerians, then, Ekweremadu should vacate both his office and the senate immediately.”
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will stabilize the prices of food and common commodities in the market, then, I am joining them in asking Ekweremadu to vacate the senate.”
“If Ekweremadu’s removal will make Buhari to abandon his 97% and 5% policy, stop Buhari from seeking to turn Nigeria to a fiefdom where the only capable hands are only people from a certain part of the country, then, Ekweremadu’s immediate constituency should recall him from the senate.”
“But , where the reverse is true, All the APC Governors seeking Ekweremadu’s removal should tender their resignation letters and handover notes. God bless Us and God bless Nigeria.”
