Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu at the weekend advised members of the opposition party in the state, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop taking codeine, a banned substance, which is making them hallucinate and boast about taking power from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu state, come 2019.
 
Ekweremadu who spoke at Sacred Heart Catholic Parish, Iwollo Omasi in Ezeagu local government area of the state while flagging off the drilling of boreholes with the newly acquired drilling rig, dismissed the APC members as noise makers saying that PDP governors across the country have shown more commitment in developing their states.
 
The Deputy Senate President promised to give water to every home and community in Enugu West senatorial district, his constituency, saying that with the newly acquired rig,  the technology, speed and number of boreholes to be sunk in the area would improve and increase astronomically.
 
He thanked the people of the state for their continuous support to the state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi whom he described as a performing governor, and said that he was only trying to help in the area of provision of water and other amenities so that the state government would face other critical areas.
 
“Sometime last week I read from the newspaper that somebody from Enugu state was at Abuja saying that he will give APC one million votes from Enugu state. Just yesterday somebody also told me that our rival political party, APC, said that they will take Enugu by force in 2019.
 
“So I now said I think they are still drinking the last pieces of
their codeine, they have forgotten that we have banned codeine in Nigeria; they are drinking the last bottles they had. By the time they will finish this one, it will clear in their eyes that there is no vacancy in Enugu state.
 
“When I got into politics of Enugu state, especially politics of Enugu West senatorial zone, I discovered that we had many challenges; challenges of roads, challenges of water and challenges of electricity.
 
“Our people were left behind in the political equation both at the federal, the state and indeed the local government. We decided to change all that, we decided that by the time we are done with politics our story would have been changed.
 
“So today we have a sense of fulfillment that we are indeed getting there.
 
“We want to provide water in every community and every home, anybody who thinks he wants water and we believe there is availability of water where he resides in Enugu West, he will have water."
