Senators of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stayed away from the screening of Rotimi Amaechi today.
Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, had told the senate that his PDP counterparts would not ask Amaechi any question since the report that had delayed his appearance in the first place had not been treated.
Majority leader, Ali Ndume however stated that the senate could as well ask Amaechi to take a bow and go.
However, after a few rowdy moments, the senate resolved to allow only APC senators ask the questions.
He answered questions on Niger Delta, Nigerian Politics and so on.
