Leave Ekweremadu out of NASS brawls – Anichukwu

Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has denied authorship of a statement to the effect that the fighting that took place on the floor of the National Assembly was done in the interest of Nigerians.
According to Uche Anichukwu, Special Adviser (Media) to Deputy President of the Senate, the report that Senator Ekweremadu authored the statement is “both fraudulent and mischievous.”
Anichukwu said that “The attention of the Office of the Deputy President of the Senate has been drawn to the report making the rounds in the social media and online newspapers in which the Deputy President of the Senate was quoted to have tried to explain away the brawls at the National Assembly.
“The said report read in part: “Dear Nigerians, please be rest assured that we are all fighting for your interest. We need your prayer and support for a better Nigeria.”
The spokesman said that the report supposedly written from Senator Ekweremadu’s purported Twitter handle is totally false.
“It would be recalled that this Office had cause to issue a statement about a year ago (specifically on June 29, 2014) to the effect that the Senator had since shut down his social media platforms and warned members of the public to disregard any message put out on these platforms supposedly by him. That decision was necessitated by fraudulent and mischievous activities such as the current report,” Anichukwu said, insisting that “the Deputy President of the Senate did not twit, does not own a Twitter handle, and did not even grant any interview whatsoever to any reporter on the sad developments at the National Assembly yet.
“Those who are strenuously trying to drag Senator Ike Ekweremadu into the fray should please bear their cross and leave him out of it. Nigerians know those brawling at the National Assembly, and it is up to them to explain to Nigerians why they brawl.”
He, therefore, called on media houses, “to kindly crosscheck with our Office on information such as the one in question before going to the public with it, so as to help check the activities of mischief-makers.”
