Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu appeared before a Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday for the commencement of their trial after being charged with forgery.

Senator Ekweremadu had appeared sporting an Igbo attire, which sparked an argument among social media users. Some were of the opinion that Ekweremadu was only trying to whip up ethnic sentiment and solicit the pity of Igbos. However, others were of the opinion that it was just an outfit and nothing more. INFORMATION NIGERIA brings you some of the things they had to say.


One Twitter user by the name Afrispheric said anyone who thinks Ekweremadu was wrong to have worn an Igbo attire should also have a problem with Buhari speaking Hausa in Asorock. Others wrote off as foolish, suggestions that they Ekweremadu was out to solicit pity from the Igbos by wearing what he wore.

This idea that Sen. Ike Ekweremadu wore Igbo attire to appeal to certain ethnic sentiment is proof of further unnecessary ethnic divisions.

However, a few are of the opinion that Sen Ekweremadu was just trying to whip up ethnic sentiment and had this to say.

Ekweremadu shamelessly stoked embers of ethnicity by dressing to court like the Igbo nation and not him is on trial for forgery
