The Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu has vowed not to waste his energy supporting the People Democratic Party’s candidate Atiku Abubakar who he believes that he cannot win the Presidential election.
All the supporters of Ekweremadu also dissociate themselves from campaigning for Atiku.
An associate of Ekweremadu, who spoke with our correspondent on condition of anonymity over the issue on Friday, said the Deputy Senate President deliberately stayed away from the campaign of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The source said Ekweremadu would not dissipate energy on a project that he was not considered worthy of playing any major role.
The source added, “The Deputy Senate President was not given any specific assignment in the Atiku Presidential Campaign Council, which I think is wrong. It is not proper that the PDP did not assign any national role to him in its presidential campaign.
