Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has advised young politicians in the PDP to concentrate on local politics and stop chasing instant results.
Ekweremadu, speaking to a cross-section of young people who are members of the PDP revealed “he can be in the PDP for life” if he wishes because he has paid his dues.
“I’m in total touch with my people and that is why if I want to remain in senate forever, I will,” Ekweremadu said.
“PDP is not a home for urban politicians, for young people. If you want to participate in politics, you have to pay your dues and the best place to pay your dues is your local community.
“That is where we all started from. Don’t think you will go to the house of representatives or house of assembly by running around Wadata Plaza, it’s not going to work.”
