Ekweremadu vowed that he could neither be intimidated nor silenced.

A statement by his media aide, Uche Anichukwu, said Ekweremadu spoke when the people of Mgbidi paid him a solidarity visit over his latest travails.

According to him, Ekweremadu told his Awgu constituents, led by the monarch, Igwe Pius Uzochukwu, that the latest allegations would fail like the previous ones as they were not founded on truth.

The statement reads: “I thank you for the show of solidarity. I have been inundated with calls, messages, and visits by concerned constituents and well-wishers within and outside the country. But, there is really nothing to worry about because the entire thing is a well-oiled propaganda on lies and doctored will that include fictitious properties, just to cow me.

“It is also about 2019 politics. However, I will not be cowed or relent in my efforts to serve you and the country. So, please sleep with your two eyes closed. Tell others too that there is nothing to worry about.

“I am also happy that more people, courageous and well-meaning men and women are speaking up on the state of the nation. Rest assured that I will not refrain from speaking up in defence of democracy.

“As I said a few weeks back, it is not about us who are privileged, but about the country and future generations. So, I can’t afford to be intimidated or distracted. Like the previous attempts to silence me, this one too shall fail.”

  1. If you are sure you are man of the people, must you acquire so many properties in and outside the country?
    Do you ever think of how many of such properties held abroad (declared or not declared) would have created local opportunities for the youths of your community if they were put on cottage industries?

    Are you the only credible politician in your constituency that you are even dreaming or talking about 2019 now?
    If you are not tired, can’t they retire you since these years?
    Who said another man can not provide more credible representation sir?

    Again, if you are sure you don’t own such properties; why worried about temporary forfeiture?

    One is not surprised about the solidarity visit paid you by your people including a king, even Ibori who serves an international jail term was give a rousing welcome by his shameless people.

    Whether they are lieing against you or not sir, time will surely tell. But those who are paying you solidarity visits (in haste) now,may not imagine what injury you may be inflicting on the constituency and the nation at large.
