"I hereby second the motion to allow you (APC senators) continue the confusion in your NEC meeting today,” Akpabio said.
Earlier, Senate leader, Ahmad Lawan had called for an adjournment of plenary to all APC Senators attend the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting.
Seconding the motion, Senator Akpabio asked his APC colleagues to ‘go and continue their confusion’.
His words: “Following the motion moved by the senate leader, the APC will be having a NEC meeting today and therefore there should be need for us to suspend all items on the order paper in other to enable them attend the NEC meeting.
“Mr President I take the privilege of seconding this motion to say that even though we have the quorum, the quorum of the senate is about 37 and we in the PDP we can continue proceedings.
“To my colleagues I give them the opportunity to attend their NEC meeting. I hereby second the motion to allow you continue the confusion in your NEC meeting today,” Akpabio said.
In a swift reaction, Senator Lawan described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as ‘a part loser’.
“The PDP is a part loser. Mr President in this chamber we cooperated, we supported them, you have no alternative but to support us,” he declared.
PDP senators had taunted APC lawmakers during the last NEC meeting, calling them members of the ‘All Progressives Crisis’.
