Lawmakers of the All Progressives Congress, APC have distanced themselves from the confirmation of Musiliu Obanikoro by the Nigerian senate as the Minister after repeated deferments.
In a report gathered from Sen. Babafemi Ojudu who took to Twitter after the confirmation of Obanikoro, APC lawmakers were said to have responded by walking out of the session in protest.
“We were not part of today’s charade. It was operation confirm Obanikoro at all cost. Same way they are planning to rig in GEJ at all cost.
We APC senators walked out when they turn process, precedence and our laws upside down. We addressed the press and stated our position.
They went ahead in spite of 40 of us from the opposition APC to confirm Obanikoro as Minister.
For them it does not matter if he has trampled upon his oath of office and abused hi position as a minister
Coming out of the chambers an Obanikoro supporter attacked Senator Mrs Oluremi Tinubu. PDP senators ignored this even on my alerting them,” He posted.
