The warning came after the actor berated the government of President Muhaummadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) for plotting to impeach Senator Ike Ekweremadu from his position as the deputy Senate President.
Following a report that APC Governors and other leaders have conceited to do everything within their powers to impeach Ekweremmadu as deputy senate president, Edochie posted his opinion on Facebook saying that he will strongly back Ekweremadu’s removal if the action will stabilize the economy, create jobs, curtail herdsmen attacks, stabilise the prices of food and common commodities in the market, among other things.
If however, Ekweremadu’s removal will not proffer solutions to the challenges facing the country, Chief Pete Edochie said “all the APC Governors seeking Ekweremadu’s removal should tender their resignation letters and handover notes”.
The actor’s statement stirred up mixed reactions from a section of Nigerians with some suggesting that his comments could get him into trouble. But others have applauded him for speaking out on the currently burning issue.
