Senator Ike Ekweremadu’s heart of gold


Senate Deputy President, Ike Ekweremadu is not one of your run-off-the-mill politicians.  In many ways, he is head and shoulders above several others in the game. He has confirmed that he is one of the few who play politics with human face.

Ekweremadu started politics as a local government chairman and rose to become the Chief of Staff to Enugu State governor and later the Secretary to the State Government. It is no secret that this great achiever has soared higher on the wings of his uncommon brilliance and acumen to become the Deputy Senate President of Nigeria.

While the forgoing may not be news, especially to those who have been following his story with interest, he is recognised as a politician with unparalleled love for fellow human beings. With his actions, Ekweremadu seems to have entered a vow to be committed to the course of humanity, an attitude that makes him unable to stand the sight of his fellow human being in distress or wants.  Spyglass gathered that he showed his milk of kindness during  the Yuletide when he donated several food items to people across his local constituency. It was revealed that he gave out money to widows and also empowered several others with motorcycles and gridding machiness.

 A source disclosed that as a tradition, thousands of members of his constituency will storm his residence today during which free foods and drinks will be in abundance. But you will be wrong if you label it a ceremonial affair, as the dark-skinned business guru has also been ‘secretly’ involved in philanthropic gestures.

As part of his philanthropic gestures, thousands of indigent students have benefited from his heart of gold, while many schools have been rehabilitated by the politician.
