The deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, has been appointed by the Peoples Democratic Party on Monday as the Technical Adviser, to the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

The party in a statement he released through its party’s National publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondinya, also named the Speaker, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, Mallam Sule Lamido and Senator Ahmed Makarfi as Technical Advisers too.

Recall that Naija News had earlier reported that the deputy Senate President, Ekweremadu, claimed that the party is not divided.

The PDP also named Lamido as the chairman of Elder’s Council for the campaign.

Other appointments made on Monday include: Alhaji Kawu Baraje, Technical Adviser to the Director-General of the campaign, Senator Bukola Saraki, while Dr. Doyin Okupe was named the Media Adviser to the Director-General.

There has been news making rounds that Senator Ekweremadu is secretly working with the All Progressives Congress candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari.

But, in his series of tweets on his official Twitter handle Monday morning, Ekweremadu described the rumour as “cheap blackmail” and “propaganda”, vowing to ensure the PDP coasts to victory in the entire South-East region of the country.
