PDP Senators Stage Walkout Over Amaechi’s Confirmation As Minister
Senators of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has staged a walk-out of the sitting of the senate.
The senators walked-out following the controversy that broke out over the confirmation of the former governor of Rives State, Rotimi Amaechi.
The committee on ethics, privileges and public petition had presented the report of the petition against Amaechi, but the recommendation of the committee raised serious argument on the floor of the upper legislative chamber.
PDP senators insisted that the senate cannot confirm Amaechi until he is cleared by the court, but APC Senators disagreed.
When it became obvious that they couldn’t have their way, they staged a walk-out.
Meanwhile, the Senate comprising of APC senators then passed moved a motion and confirmed Amaechi’s nomination.
