Senate Majority Leader, Godswill Akpabio has said that the PDP caucus of the senate staged a walk out while a ministerial nominee, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi was about to be confirmed for national interest.
He said this in an interview with journalist, adding that they staged a walkout because due process was not being followed in the Amaechi’s case with the Senate Committee on Ethics and Public Petition.
The PDP senators had bent that the senate would not confirm Amaechi until it is able to deliberate and conlude all matters of allegations raised in the committee’s report.
“We staged a walk out in the interest of the nation. We are lawmakers not lawbreakers,” he said.
However, Senator Kabiru Gaya of Kano South expressed his displeasure with the Walk Out, saying that the angry senators should have stayed to see what would happen concerning Amaechi.
“I’m sure everything is politics, we will resolve it,” he stated.
