While speaking on Thursday at Sheraton Hotel at a public dialogue organised by the #NotTooYoungToRun movement, the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, boasted that he could remain in the senate for the rest of his life if he so wishes, adding that he is always in touch with his constituents, and could easily win elections.
 
The influential politician who spoke at the event with the themed: “Youth Candidacy and the Future of Nigeria Beyond 2019”, said “I’m in total touch with my people and that is why if I want to remain in senate forever, I will.”
 
Ekweremadu charged young aspirants on the platform of PDP, to always reach out to their immediate constituencies, adding that it is the only way to remain relevant in politics.
 
He said; “PDP is not a home for urban politicians, for young people,” he said. “If you want to participate in politics, you have to pay your dues and the best place to pay your dues is your local community. That is where we all started from.
 
“Don’t think you will go to the House of Reps or House of Assembly by running around Wadada Plaza, it’s not going to work.”

 
Ekweremadu has been Nigeria’s deputy Senate president for over a decade.

"Yeye" man. You think you are Saraki, who has his people permanently binder wraps. There are people in your Constituency that have already purchased enough  brooms ready to sweep off your footprints to your various Overseas homes. Of course, you can take a Course from Saraki on  Mass "Mumunisation". This you can do by mass feeding them during any available Occasions.
