Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged German authorities and the Nigerian ambassador to that country to take “appropriate action” against those who attacked Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Nuremberg Germany at the weekend.
In a statement signed by PDP’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party condemned “in its entirety, the attack on former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremmadu, by some Nigerians in Germany, at the weekend.”
The party says it “notes that the former Deputy Senate President was attending the 2nd Igbo Annual Festival in Germany where he was duly scheduled as a speaker and special guest of honour when he was attacked.
“The party insists that the attack on Senator Ekweremadu was uncalled for, unprovoked and cannot be justified under any guise whatsoever. The PDP added that such assault on a senator is completely unacceptable and does not portray our nation in proper light.
Consequently, the party charged “the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany as well as the German government to take appropriate decisive action on the matter.
“The party also urges the Federal Government, particularly, the National Assembly, to take urgent comprehensive step to address issues leading to acts of resentment and agitations by Nigerians within and outside the country in the last four years, under President Muhammadu Buhari’s misrule.”
