Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu has said that he will not be bullied from facing his constitutional duties head on.
Ekweremadu was invited by the Police, over allegations of forgery bordering the 2015 Senate Standing Order.
Speaking through a statement released on Monday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Uche Anichukwu, the Senator revealed that he had received several calls and messages from various groups and organizations over the spectacle in which his life and liberty are being threatened by desperate politicians.
Ekweremadu said, “I wishes to assure all Nigerians and concerned members of the international community that everything is under control and that all democratic steps are being taken to preserve the nation’s democracy and protect the independence of the legislature.
“I further assure Nigerians that necessary steps are being taken by the security agencies to beef up security around me.
“I also appreciate the nation’s security agencies for their professional handling of the situation so far, and acknowledge with a deep sense of gratitude the numerous youths across the country who have volunteered to provide additional security around me.
“In all these, however, let it be known that no amount of intimidation or harassment will deter me from carrying out the constitutionally prescribed duties, which on June 9, 2015, PDP and APC Senators willingly elected me in the full glare of the world to perform.”
