A mild drama ensued in the Senate yesterday when the PDP senators refused to support the approval of votes and proceedings of last week Thursday, where former Governor of Rivers State and ministerial nominee, Rotimi Amaechi and 17 others were confirmed as ministers. Saraki had in line with parliamentary practice, called on Senator Peter Nwaoboshi (PDP, Delta North), to second Senator Isiaka Adeleke's (APC, Osun West), motion for the adoption of votes and proceedings of the Senate of October 29 (Thursday).

Nwaoboshi declined to perform the legislative function as directed by the President of the Senate, saying "My President, I will not be able to second the motion because I was not at the plenary to know what was done.” Saraki consequently called on Senator Ibrahim Gobir (APC, Sokoto East), to second the motion. Senator Gobir did this promptly, as it was obvious that no PDP senator would carry out the function.
