The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the attack on former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, on Saturday, August 17, 2019 by some Nigerians in Germany,
In a statement by the PDP on Sunday, August 18, 2019, it noted 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.
According to the party, the attack on Senator Ekweremadu was uncalled for, unprovoked and cannot be justified under any guise whatsoever. The PDP went on to say such assault on a leader is completely unacceptable and does not portray our nation in a proper light.
The PDP charged the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany as well as the German government to take appropriate and decisive action on the matter.
The party also urged the Federal Government, particularly, the National Assembly, to take an urgent comprehensive step to address issues leading to acts of resentment and agitations by Nigerians within and outside the country.
