Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, on Saturday, lauded governors on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, describing them as exceptional.
He asked the All Progressives Congress, APC, to forget Enugu in 2019 as there as no vacancy in the State.
Ekweremadu spoke in Ezeagu council area of the State where he flagged off water scheme for his Enugu West Constituency, tagged: “Enugu West Water For All.”
He said “Earlier this week, I was in Delta State where I commissioned several projects. I will also be in Rivers State next week for the same purpose. When we were coming here, we also saw several roads done by the working Governor of Enugu State.
“So, I’m happy and proud to be a member of the PDP. I thank God for democracy; I thank God for the PDP.
“The other day, I read where where somebody in Abuja is saying that APC will get one million votes here; the other one said APC will take over by force in 2019.
“I want to let them know that there is no vacancy in Enugu State. It shall soon be clear to them.”
The Deputy Senate President, while speaking on the water scheme, said it was a demonstration of his commitment to partner keep partnering with the State to government to make life better for the people.
“We did not come into politics to win election but to make life better for the people. We are complementing the work being done by His Excellency, the Governor of Enugu State and of course those at the local government.
“God has ordered our steps and of course ordered them correctly, and that is the what we are doing here today, which is the whole essence of governance.
“By the end of July, we shall come here to commission this project. We want to provide water to every community, to every home.
“When I got into politics, I discovered challenges of water, road and electricity. Our people were left behind in political equation both at the Federal, State and Local government levels. We are determined to change turn things around and I am certain that by the time are done, the stage would have changed,” he added.
