Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has been nominated for the position of the Deputy Senate President.
Ekweremadu’s nomination, however, came as a surprise to many.
Senator-elect Chukwuka Utazi nominated the immediate past deputy President of the Senate to retain his seat at the 9th Senate.
The nomination was seconded by Senator-elect Rose Oko (Cross River North).
Both Utazi and Oko are of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The lawmaker representing Enugu West, however, excepted the nomination as he vowed to work with Ahmed Lawan who had earlier been elected Senate President.
This was even as the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) had nominated the Senator-elect for Delta Central, Ovie Omo-Agege.
Senator-elect for Katsina North, Ahmed Baba Kaita nominated Omo-Agege while Senator-elect for Niger North, Abdullahi Aliyu Sabi seconded it.
In nominating Ekweremadu, Senator-elect Utazi said, his emergence as the deputy president would “restore the sanctity of the Senate chamber which was bastardized eight months ago”.
