It is against the law for the DSP to walk out from a plenary; as DSP he isn't just representing the PDP, he is representing the whole senate. Your blame should be on Saraki for being partisan when he is heading a senate comprised of different parties.
As SP or DSP, it is expected of one being neutral and only reaching decisions from reactions of each senators; my two cents is that the era of yays and nays should be abolished and electronic voting considered.

no. You need only 2/3 of senators present at the senate floor. So if 79 senators are present when the motion for impeachment is made, only 2/3 of the 79 senators present at the senate floor is required to impeach the senate president or DSP. Those absent in the senate floor can't vote.

The constitution did not say 2/3 of the senators on the floor mumu!! It said 2/3 of the senate!!! 73 senators are needed to remove him!!!

So your anger is that ekwemadu remains the DSP?

If one-third could form a quorum to elect the Senate President (Saraki), then that same one-third should be able to form a quorum to impeach the Deputy Senate President (Ekweremadu). Though it's unconstitutional.

Re: Is Ike Ekweremadu A Coward And A Disloyal PDP Man? by Nobody: 8:56pm On Oct 29, 2015
Goodness me, what a preposterous and mis-informed opinion on the actions of the deputy Senate President.

Do you not realize that the Senate voted in both its President and the deputy as the PRESIDING OFFICERS, and with that the smooth running of sessions ?

They indirectly become the umpires of the place, yet some clowns want them to become actively partisan most times.

For not standing side by side with his fellow PDP senators today, on the confirmation of Amaechi,i feel the DSP,showed to whole world that he is a coward. Saraki stood on the side of APC,when it became obvious that the issue of amaechi,has taken the dimension of APC vs PDP.Ekweramadu as the PDP senator holding the highest ranking position in the Senate, should have stood up to show solidarity with his fellow PDP senators.To me,ekweremadu today showed that he is not a sincere loyal PDP man.
He's free to decamp tbough.He decided to stick to the light against the forces of darkness.

Did Ike Ekweremadu vote for Amaechi?

As deputy Senate President he can not be part of a Staged walk out

There are ways to record your misgivings without walking out.

It's ok for floor members to Walk out, but Ekweremadu is in position of authority and he can express his protest by voicing objection or voting against or voting present depending on what the rules allow!
Re: Is Ike Ekweremadu A Coward And A Disloyal PDP Man? by McKren(m): 10:10pm On Oct 29, 2015
Saraki played the right politics in the circumstance by allowing the voice of the majority

PDP are right to stage a walk out. Their protest is now officially in the records that Buhari nominated a corrupt candidate and they protested

I don't think PDP were under any illusions they can stop Amaechi confirmation

But their protest is on record!

Don't blame the DSP. If he had left the senate floor. There would have been a coup at the senate today. An APC member would have move for the motion for the impeachment of him and without him or pdp members on the senate floor. He would have been easily been impeached


what is Impeachment
