Ekweremadu canâ€™t preside over us, APC Senators insist
All Progressives Congress (APC) Senators
Wednesday threatened to stay away from the
Senate chamber at any session presided over by
Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
Ekweremadu, a Peopleâ€™s Democratic Party (PDP)
Senator, emerged Deputy Senate President in a
Senate Chamber with APC as the majority party.
The Enugu West Senatorial representative for the
first time since his controversial election on June
9 , 2015, presided over Senate session
Wednesday due to the absence of the Senate
President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
Saraki, it was said, went to the Presidential Villa,
Abuja for the inauguration of ministers by
President Muhammadu Buhari.
During the Senate session, some APC Senators led
by Senators Ahmed Lawan and George Akume
stormed out of the chamber immediately they
noticed that Ekweremadu was to preside.
