- Barr Sullivan Chime says Senator Ike Ekweremadu has many crimes to answer for
- Chime says Ekweremadu is perpetuating himself in the Senate to avoid probe
- The former governor says Ekweremadu's politics is enshrined in greed and personal gain
Ex-governor Sullivan Chime has accused Senator Ike Ekweremadu of holding political position in a bid to enrich himself and his family.
Chime made the assertion at Ngwo-Uno ward, in Udi Council Area of Enugu state.
The ex-governor was in the area to join in the celebration of the defection of Chief Donald Nnadi, popularly called “Ikeweta”.
Ikeweta defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Chime, who congratulated the latest decampee for taking a bold decision to leave PDP, reinstated his stand that the party died long ago.
The ex-governor noted that many politicians like Ekweremadu occupy a particular elective position for too long due to greed and fear of the unknown.

He stressed that “Anybody who cannot survive outside politics is not fit enough to be in politics”.
Chime said some people being sponsored to castigate him were fond of telling people what he did not do as governor without telling them what he did.
He stressed that under his administration, he mapped out the needs of every community in the state, through a programme tagged “Visit Every Community” (VEC).
According to Chime, his government itemized the needs of the people and addressed most of them before living office.

He said that since government was a continuum, the present administration in the state should continue from where he stopped.
