APC: ‘We’ll be glad if Ekweremadu resigns,’ Chairman says

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Party (APC), has said that the party would be very glad if Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu were to resign his position.

Ekweremadu emerged Deputy Senate President after Senate President, Bukola Saraki defied the APC to contest and garnered most of his votes from Senator-members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Oyegun made the comments while speaking with Channels television on ‘Roadmap 2015′.

“If he wants to resign, we would be very very glad, but for now, as at today, our mission is to get the senate settled to get them at work,” Oyegun said.

“We are in charge; we are in control. There’s no question about that. The aspect of an Ekweremadu may be an aggravation, but we have to continue to work until things resolve themselves and things would resolve themselves,” he added.

Oyegun also said, via a statement issued on Friday, June 19, 2015, that the APC was working hard to resolve the crisis in the party.
