I have a feeling that Senator Ekweremadu will emerge the deputy Senate President and will defeat his rival Ovi Omoagege

There is a Vacancy for Bishop Position in Anglican Church and a Catholic Priest is applying! Ekweremadu is not serious 🤣

Do u mean deputy bishop cos ekweremadu likes anything called deputy. If he loses he will contest for deputy minority leader if there's chance. 😂

This is interesting i will like Ekweremadu to win DSP seat and see how things will turn out for the Executive

PDP miscaclulated on DSP. The thinking was that at least two APC senators would vie for that seat but Omo-Agege gets this

On second thoughts, Omo-Agege violated the Senate in the worst possible way. Stole the mace with the aid of thugs who broke the leg of a sergeant-at-arms who was doing her job.
It needs to be mentioned as often as possible. So yeah. Ekweremadu was right to mention it https://t.co/h8N3Y6Lxgf
