Former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has dismissed reports that he has defected to Labour Party.

There was rumour on Friday that the Senator, who withdrew from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship primary election in Enugu State, has moved to the Labour Party.

But when contacted, his media aide, Mr. Uche Anichukwu told DAILY POST that it was absolute falsehood.

He equally issued a terse statement urging the members of the public to disregard the report.

The statement reads, “Our attention has been drawn to an online misinformation to the effect that former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has joined the Labour Party.

“This is false and should be disregarded.”
