PHOTONEWS: PDP Senators Stage A Walkout In Defiance Of Amaechi's Confirmation

SaharaReporters has received photos of Senators from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) staging a walkout today in protest to the ministerial confirmation of former Governor of Rivers State Rotimi Amaechi.

A dramatic two-week ministerial screening and confirmation process for Mr. Amaechi culminated today after a long closed door meeting with high level Senate officials and ended with PDP members leaving the Senate Chambers.

Former Governor Amaechi was confirmed as a Minister for the Federal Republic of Nigeria today by members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) shortly after the protest.
