Musiliu Obanikoro's ministerial confirmation is a show of shame - Lagos APC

Following yesterday's confirmation of Musiliu Obanikoro's ministerial nomination by the senate, the Lagos state chapter of All Progressive Congress (APC) has described the decision as an act of impunity and corruption as well as a total show of shame which could dent the image of the country and the senate.

The statement by the party was rooted in the damaging implications of Mr. Obanikoro's involvement in an election rigging scandal in Ekiti state.

Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, reacting to the development yesterday, said that the confirmation of Obanikoro showed the sinister intent of the senate leadership and the PDP to institute deep rooted corruption and illegality in Nigeria so long as their nefarious interests are met.

The Senate confirmed the nomination of Obanikoro and the seven other nominees screened before it yesterday.

Other ministerial nominees were; Mrs Hauwa’u Lawan from Jigawa State, Kenneth Kobani from Rivers State, Senator Joel Danlami Ikenya from Taraba State and Senator Patricia Akwashiki from Nasarawa State, Professor Nicholas Akise Ada, Benue State, Col. Augustine Akobundu (Abia State) and Fidelis Nwankwo, Ebonyi State.
