Senator representing Edo Central senatorial district in the eighth National Assembly, Senator Clifford Ordia has said that no amount of bickering by the leaders of the All Progressives Congress can overturn the emergence of Dr. Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu as Senate President and Deputy Senate President.
Ordia who is also a member of the Peoples Democratic Congress said “We will defend the mandate of Ekweremadu with every drop of energy we have.
“These two senators are cerebral politicians and they understand the workings of the National Assembly. I have no doubt about their ability to deliver and stabilise the Senate. Their emergence is not about APC or PDP. It is about a shift from the past.
“What Saraki and Ekweremadu need right now is the support of every Nigerian in order to succeed. It is a waste of time, calling for their removal. That will never happen. Instead of wasting precious time, why can’t aggrieved senators just drop their pride and accept their emergence?”
He added that it is now time to fulfil campaign promises, he said “We have finished the elections. At this time, political parties should allow their elected representatives begin work and deliver on their campaign promises. We have a lot of things to do and the time is short.
