Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president, says he will remain in the upper legislative chamber forever, if he wants.

Ekeweramdu said this on Thursday while speaking at the event organised by the Not Too Young To Run movement.

The theme of the event was ‘Youth Candidacy and the Future of Nigeria Beyond 2019.’

He advised the young political aspirants to go back to their grassroots and “pay your 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 Wadatda Plaza, it’s not going to work.”

The deputy senate president has been in upper legislative chamber for more than a decade.

Senate President Bukola declared his intention to run for office of the president at the event.
