Chief Whip of the Senate, Olusola Adeyeye has said he is not aware of any plot to remove Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu or force him to defect to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Adeyeye spoke at the National Secretariat of his party, the All Progressives Congress, in Abuja.

In his words, “I am a member of the APC caucus in the Senate. I am aware of the effort of the party that led to the emergence of Senator Ahmed Lawan.

“I have never at any meeting heard plans to remove the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekwerenmadu. It is in the realm of speculations, but speculation is not new to politics, in fact it is an integral part of the political process.”

Similarly, Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan said “All I know is that, my colleagues in the Senate APC caucus held a meeting and decided that I should be made Senate Leader and that happened on Tuesday last week as you all know.

“We are looking forward to working together in a very brotherly and fraternal manner with the APC caucus and indeed with other Senators from other political parties such as the Labour party and the PDP.

“I don’t have any idea if anyone is trying to impeach anyone in the Senate.”
