Abuja - Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Senate have vowed to stop the re-appointment of Musiliu Obanikoro as Minister, reports Punch.
This follows his alleged indictment in the use of the military to rig the Ekiti governorship election in June 2014.
Babafemi Ojudu, spokesperson of the APC Senate Caucus, stated that they have started mobilising themselves to frustrate Obanikoro’s clearance and approval for fresh appointment.

He noted that other Senators from the opposition parties are also being co-opted into the struggle.
By tradition, Obanikoro as a former Senator is expected to take a bow before the whole house and receive automatic clearance.
