The deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, has said he will remain in the upper legislative chamber forever, if he wants.
Ekeweramdu, who has been a senator for over 10 years, said this on Thursday, while speaking at an event organised by the Not Too Young To Run movement.
The event, themed: “Youth Candidacy and the Future of Nigeria Beyond 2019”, is a series of political engagements. It was aimed at broadening the political participation of young Nigerians ahead of the elections next February.
The Senate President Bukola Saraki also declared his presidential ambition at the same event.
He advised the young political aspirants to go back to their grassroots and “pay your dues.”
“I’m in total touch with my people and that is why if I want to remain in senate forever, I will,” Ekweremadu said.
