Senate confirms Obanikoro as Minister as APC senators stage walkout

The Senate Obanikoro1on Wednesday confirmed Senator Musiliu Obanikoro’s second coming as minister. It would be recalled that stiff opposition from All Progressives Congress, APC, Senators and few members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, last week disrupted the screening of Obanikoro for ministerial appointment.

The APC Senators had protested the inclusion of Obanikoro following his alleged role in ‘rigging’ the Ekiti election. But today, during the screening, while the opposition staged a walkout, the Senators followed the tradition of the Senate where a former Senator would be asked to take a bow and leave without being asked questions.
