Senator Ike Ekweremadu has said that nobody would remove him as Deputy President of the Senate.
Addressing his constituents during the Ikeoha Foundation Adult Literacy Day and 2015/2016 scholarship and bursary award ceremony at Eziagu Local Government Secretariat, Enugu, yesterday, Senator Ekeremadu said, “nobody will remove me; it’s not by our power, it’s not by our might but by the special grace of God.”
He, however, added that whether those bent on seeing him out of the Senate succeed in doing so, the beneficiaries of his scholarship scheme would continue to receive free education.
He also donated sewing machines and grinding machines to over 200 women including widows from the five councils that make up the senatorial zone.
The Governor of Enugu State, Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who also addressed the crowd, described education as the bedrock of any development.
“Most advance countries today are where they are because of their commitments to education,” Ugwuanyi said.
The governor said that was the reason his administration was making great investment in the education sector.
He assured that the Ekweremadu Foundation and others like it which are designed to improve the welfare of the people will continue to receive government’s support.
