There was a slight frenzy in the Senate on Monday after a lawmaker moved a motion for the suspension of the screening of Festus Keyamo, former minister of Labour and Employment.

Senator Darlington Nwokocha, member representing Abia Central Senatorial District moved a motion for the suspension of Keyamo.

Nwokocha’s motion was seconded by his colleague from Abia-South Senatorial District, Enyinnaya Abaribe.

Senate President, Godswill Akpabio thereafter subjected the motion to a voice vote but the lawmakers were divided on the matter.

The red chamber immediately erupted into a rowdy session.

Nwokocha had accused Keyamo of disrespecting the 9th National Assembly and accusing the last Assembly of being corrupt.

Keyamo was the presidential spokesman of president Bola Ahmed Tinubu campaign council.
