Senator Ike Ekweremadu, the Nigerian Deputy Senate President, has said he will not be seeking re-election into the Upper Chamber of the nation’s National Assembly in 2023.

This is, according to a press statement made by the lawmaker on Sunday, May 12 in celebration of his 57th birthday.

In his communiqué, Ekweremadu appreciated God and his constituents for his re-election and triumphs, noting that he was raised to address enormous challenges faced by his people.

The parliamentarian said 2023 will be time to call it quits, adding, however, that as the 9th Assembly gets underway, he will ensure that all ongoing projects within his constituency are finished.

He said he will continue to collaborate with others within the Senate and outside, to ensure that the nation begins to enjoy peace, justice, and unity on a different pedestal.

“I will work with other patriotic Nigerians within and outside the National Assembly and across party, ethnic, and religious lines to address issues of disunity, insecurity, and poverty currently threatening our nation. I believe that together we can pioneer a new order characterised by peace, justice, unity, prosperity, egalitarianism, and boundless opportunities for all.” (Channels TV)
