Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, sunday congratulated Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, on his victory at Saturday’s Abia North senatorial district rerun election.

Ekweremadu, in a statement by his Special Adviser, Media, Uche Anichukwu, described the victory as a confirmation of Ohuabunwa’s mass appeal and earlier victory, saying it was a further proof that the people of Abia North have abiding faith in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He said: “For the PDP and Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, it is a victory foretold because in Abia State, the PDP holds the ace and we marketed a quality product, a rich repository of legislative experience. This victory goes to show that the April 2015 victory was never a fluke.”

He reminded Ohuabunwa of PDP’s long-standing principle of non-discrimination as he urged him to remain an all-inclusive representative irrespective of the political choices of some of his constituents.
