I Hold No Grudge against Those that Tossed Me out – Senator Ike Ekweremadu



August 18, 2019

By Nelson Ofokar Yagazie | Biafra Writers

Former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, who received an unexpected baptism of fire yesterday in Germany, has said that he holds no grudge against his baptizers. The senator who attended the Second Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organized by Igbos living in Germany made the statement through his Media Assistant, Uche Anichukwu, in Abuja.

Ekweremadu arrived in Nuremberg, Germany, yesterday where, according to him, he was billed to give a keynote address along with the President-General of the proscribed Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo. The senator somehow got more than he bargained for as some aggrieved Igbo youths arrived at the scene to toss him out, expressing dissatisfaction over the nonchalant attitude of Igbo politicians over the incessant killings going on in Biafra land.

Confirming the unfortunate encounter in a press statement through his media assistant, Uche Anichukwu, the disgraced senator said, “Much as I am disappointed in their conduct, especially as I am one of the persons, who have spoken up on justice for Ndigbo, the Python Dance, judicial killings in Igbo land and elsewhere, both on the floor of the Senate and in my written and personal engagements with the Presidency as well as rallied the South East Senate Caucus to secure Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s release with Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe taking him on bail to douse tension in the South East, I nevertheless do not hold this to heart against them, for they know not what they do.”

The aggrieved Igbo youths that confronted Ekweremadu were sending a message to all politicians of Biafra extraction, and the senator seems to have gotten the message, hence his pronouncement of holding no grudge. The clause in the ‘no grudge’ statement, “for they know not what they do,” is understandably a wise man’s way of retaining pride. And yes, he can keep his pride for the encounter was not to assault his person but to draw his attention to urgent matters he and his co-politicians seem to be overlooking.

The downtrodden people of Biafra who have been so grossly overlooked by the elite who claim to represent them are therefore hoping that other politicians in the region will get the message delivered to them via the Ekweremadu encounter and turn a new leaf.
