Ekweremadu who some people felt he was arrested when he was not chosen as the Vice-president hopeful to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
When contacted, Ike Ekweremadu Said he is still In PDP. He had to respond after been inundated with calls from friends and Political associates seeking clarification on the rumours of his departure from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which has dominated the media.
In his own words he said; Let it be known that my path in politics is in the hands of the Almighty God, who has indeed been very faithful and gracious to me. I am very grateful to God for this. My vision in politics is a system that works for everybody, a social and political environment where everybody, every section, and every tribe not only counts, but is also seen to count. As leaders, we must be mindful of this, for any system built on anything on anything less will not endure. I am grateful to you – members of my family, my friends, political associates, and admirers across Nigeria and beyond – for your uncommon concern. I am indeed humbled by your kind words of solidarity and support.
“Please, rest assured that I am still in the PDP“
