Ekweremadu emerges leader of Southeast Senate caucus

Former Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has emerged as the leader of the Southeast Senate caucus. 
The Enugu West senator emerged on Tuesday night in Abuja at a bipartisan meeting of southeast senators, held at the residence of the Minority Leader of the Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe.
Ekweremadu, it was learned, emerged unopposed. He served as Deputy President of the Senate between 2007-2009. He was defeated when he made a 4th attempt by the Ovie Omo-Agege.
Prior to his emergence as the leader of the caucus, some leaders from the region opted for a former governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani.
Nnamani, it was learned, stepped down at the last minute to pave way for the emergence of Ekweremadu, who is the longest-serving senator from the South East and one of the longest-serving in the country.
