Nigeria’s Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has called on the nation’s government to respect fundamental rights of citizens.

He stated this in his state, Enugu, while addressing newsmen at the weekend.

“We should expect that human rights are respected, that there is justice for all, there is fairness, there is equal opportunity for everybody in Nigeria.

“If you do that, Nigeria will not care whether you come for the north or south. What they want is an environment where everybody can thrive, especially for the Ibos who are egalitarian,” he said.

He said every citizens must be allowed to live wherever they choose within the country, and that everyone has a right to happiness and decent life.

He said those advising President Muhammadu Buhari should know that the nation is a free society where everybody has rights to enjoy.

Few hours after he made his calls on the government, he honoured an invitation of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) which accused him of money laundering.

Ekweremadu had been forced to remain in his Abuja home on Tuesday July 24 by the police.

He was scheduled to preside over the Senate that day when Bukola Saraki, the Senate President, was asked to report to the police over his alleged link with the robbery of commercial banks in Offa, Kwara State earlier this year, where 31 persons, including nine police officers, were killed and huge cash carted away.

The police, joined by the operatives of the EFCC, blocked Ekweremadu’s residence and submitted a letter of invitation by the EFCC to him that day.
