On June 16th, 2015, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, said his party PDP is well prepared to defend the Deputy position assigned to Senator Ike Ekweremadu, as he (Ekweremadu) duly contested in the election and constitutionally won the election.
This matter came to the fore when senator Peter Nwaoboshi who represents Delta North made a telephone comment concerning some utterances made by Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the former governor of Kano State.
Senator Peter’s grouse was that senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso a former governor of Kano state on the platform of PDP had no right to postulate that Senator Ike Ekweremadu should be made to vacate his seat as a Deputy Senate President, for the mere reason that during PDP 16-years reign, no opposition member had a pre-village to such an elective post, he wondered aloud how Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso who defected from PDP with the mind of becoming president could make such poignant statement.
Senator Peter Nwaoboshi also added that Kwankwaso who had been enjoying a lot of opportunity plus the NDDC pivotal position, left the PDP party out of his greed and selfishness but could not make a mark in the election and failed woefully in a bid to become the president of the country .
Senator Peter solemnly advice senator Kwankwaso who failed to vote during the inauguration to stay clear from the Saraki-Ekweremadu , the people’s choice and think of how best he can help his party APC.
The only way senator Kwankwaso can make sense out of this case is to avoid sentiment and go to court for the due process of getting the impeachment to be done.
Finally, senator Peter Nwaoboshi stated that senator Kwankwaso and his disgruntled APC members should not fight their battle on the pages of newspaper, warning them ” Let me tell you we, the PDP senators, are waiting for them. They don’t have the number, they don’t have the capacity to impeach”.
