The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) South East Zone has congratulated the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, on his recent appointment as a Visiting Professor by the Southern University, Baton Rouge Louisiana, United States of America.

The party described the appointment as well deserved.

National Vice chairman of PDP in the zone, Chief Austin Umahi, in a statement in Enugu on Tuesday, described the appointment as reward for excellence, hard work, diligence and virtue.

He described Ekweremadu as a consummate scholar, a perfect politician and a gentleman whose passion for the enthronement of rule of law is total and expressed confidence that the lawmaker would excel in this new task.

Umahi described Ekweremadu as the holding force and engine of PDP revival in the zone and, by extension, the entire country and described his appointment as a clear manifestation of resilience and dedication to service which Ekweremadu has exhibited since his foray into partisan politics.

His words: “On behalf of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP South East zone, I wish to congratulate one of our quintessential leaders in the zone and the nation at large, His Excellency, Senator Prof Ike Ekweremadu, on his appointment as a full visiting professor by the prestigious Southern University, Baton Rouge Louisiana, United States of America.

“Ike Ekweremadu has been a holding force in the nation’s legislature. His wealth of experience and human approach to national issues has been the binding force that has held the country together and earned Nigeria a great space among the comity of nations. No doubts, his foray into active partisan politics never retarded his love for his profession as a lawyer, a teacher and a great academic guru.

“His appointment as a full professor has once again shown that Ndigbo and indeed PDP parade the best brains in all ramifications.

“No doubt, at the epicentre of our quest to reclaim power and reposition the economy of this country and restore her glory, lies Ike Ekweremadu, a solid rock, a dependable ally and a man that has absolute respect for the rule of law.

“He has demonstrated beyond political interests, ethnic and religious lines to show that democracy as the best form of government should be guarded with sincerity and dedication.”

Umahi added that Senator Ekweremadu through his numerous educative and informative national and international journals has brought to the fore so many challenges facing the contemporary society especially in Africa and has proffered solution on how to tackle them.
