Senator Ekweremadu reacts to FG’s move to confisticate his assets

Deputy Senate President, Senator Ekweremadu, says he has no asset to be forfeited to the federal government as he has declared all his assets with the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) as required by law.

This he made known via a statement released by his Special Adviser (Media), Mr Uche Anichukwu.

Federal Government asked the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday to freeze undeclared assets that were traced to Senator Ekweremadu.

Thirteen properties were reportedly traced to Ekweremadu; nine are in Nigeria, two in the UK, eight in Dubai and three are in the US.

Following the purported discovery, TheCable reported that Abubakar Malami, attorney general of the federation (AGF), had filed a false declaration of assets charge against Ekweremadu before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

Senator Ekweremadu is said to have failed to disclose the foreign assets in his declarations to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

Reacting, his aide said, “The attention of the Office of the Deputy President of the Senate, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu, has been drawn to a Motion Exparte filed by Festus Keyamo Chambers on behalf of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property.

“The motion is for an order to temporarily forfeit assets it claimed the senator did not declare with the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

“The so-called panel sought and obtained his Assets Declaration Forms, but could not look at them since it is clearly out on a vendetta and smear campaign.

“Again, Sen. Ekweremadu wishes to assure all his supporters and well-wishers that there is nothing to worry about.”

Ike Ekweremadu is a Nigerian politician and lawyer from Enugu State who has served in the Senate of Nigeria since May 2003. He is a member of the People’s Democratic Party and is currently Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate for the third consecutive time.

Ike Ekweremadu was born in 1962 at Amachara Mpu in Aninri Local Government Area of Enugu State. wikipedia
