On July 30, 2018 117 Comments

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has asked the Federal Government to respect the rights of Nigerians, so that the rule of law, equity and justice will prevail.

Ekweremadu stated this on Saturday while speaking to journalists in Enugu.

“Let me use the opportunity to advise the government to ensure that human rights are respected, that there is justice to all, fairness, and equal opportunity to everybody in Nigeria”, he said.

Ekweremadu wants an environment whereby Nigerians especially the Igbos can strive.

“All they want is an atmosphere for them to grow, they are not interested in Presidency or anything”.

His comment comes after security operatives last Tuesday stormed his residence and that of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki in Abuja.

He called for the restructuring of the country where Nigerians will have rights to freedom, democracy and live as one from different parts of the country.

“We need to come back to the rights of freedom, democracy and fundamental rights which our forefathers agreed should be the guiding principles of democracy in Nigeria”, he further added.

    Kudus to the current Igbo leaders, for opting out, shunning, rejecting the offer of presenting the next STOOGE, for that is what the presidency of Nigeria has now become in the hands of the Northern CABALS.
    Tell them to Restructure or organise a Referendum for all objecting parts of this sinking nation.

    Sometimes I look at the Igbo nation and I can’t help but express some level of pity. This is a highly populated area with very educated, industrious and versatile people and all these are positive factors that make a society and a people first class. Unfortunately that does not seem to be the current case with the Igbo. Increasingly, they are suffering relegation and gradually it is growing into abandonment and that is very unfortunate for a people that should be courted and embraced. I don’t know the why a first class nation has suddenly become the boot of all. Some say civil war took its toll; that is a fact. It is also a fact that the war ended more than four and a half decades ago and if past examples are anything to go by, given their known resourcefulness they ought to have regained balance and taken their position.

    You have been in the National Assembly for many years but you didn’t know that Ndi Igbo needed freedom except now that you have corruption cases awaiting for you. In the first place tell the people whose sentiments you are trying to exploit, your achievements for them for all the years you stayed in the national assembly, and whether you have ever submitted any bill seeking for their freedom, independence and emancipation. Ndi Igbos do not be fooled by the people who have been part of your problems, only when they are in trouble they remember you to fight for them through your processions and protests. BE WISE.

JESUS CHRIST IS NOT A KILLER,BUT A REDEEMER, HE IS A FOR GIVER, AND SALVATION BELONGS TO HIM NOT MOHAMED A MAN LIKE ME. SO I KNOW MY REDEEMER LIVETH, AND HE LIVETH FOR EVER MORE. BUT MOHAMED IS DEAD,AND WILL NAVER COME BACK TO LIFE. AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SALVATION BUT KILLING AND EVIL.

    Sooner or later all of those that sport the fulani kalifaith reson right. Because all Nigeria do is use and kill or dump u, with one voice, one Word,and one spirite we united. That is referéndum. Okorocha, nnia nwodo and all there soporters will soon aply thier proper initietives and understand that as long as there is islam in Nigeria. The killings will naver stop. Why dont we stop the killings of our peopel by voten for referéndum. Freedum is the only solution that BIAFRA need and not president. Because we have seen what Nigeria did to yacobu jarck gowon and T Y danjuma. They used them against the BIAFRA from 1967 to 1970 to wipe all the BIAFRANS. But today they came after them as well to wipe them too. Because some midel belt are also part of BIAFRA but Nigeria dont whant them to accknowlage thier history. That was why murutala Mohamed divided the state and call midel belt and also called some Níger delta. To bring confution among the biafra so that they can naver unite. And Nigeria will be abel to dominate them and wipe at the end they whant our land for thier caws. Because the land of the rising sun BIAFRA our land is milk and horney.BIAFRA REFERENDUM HALELUYA GRATE IS OUR LIVING GOD

    What the Igbos have achieved in all the fields of human endeavours have surpassed the tarnished, blemished, blood-stained, corruption-weakened Nigerian Presidency.
