Senators Ahmed Lawan, George Akume, Others Rejects Ekweremadu

Senators Ahmed Lawan and George Akume of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led other APC senators in a protest yesterday when the session was presided over by Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu. 
Ekweremadu, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker representing the Enugu West senatorial  district,  who emerged  the Deputy Senate President in a Senate with APC as the majority party presided over Senate session yesterday, following the absence of Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki. 

Saraki, it was said, went to the Presidential Villa, Abuja for the inauguration of the ministers by President Muhammadu Buhari.
 During the session, some APC lawmakers led by Senators Ahmed Lawan and George Akume stormed out of the chamber immediately they noticed that Ekweremadu was to preside.
To the senators, it is  grave sadness for the opposition party, PDP’s Ike Ekweremadu to preside over the majority membership of the APC-led chamber.
Other APC senators have made it clear that they will no longer sit whenever Ekweremadu will preside in the absence of the senate president Saraki
