Senator Dino Melaye of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday said the party lost Deputy Senate Presidency to the Peeople’s Democratic Party (PDP) because many of its senators were absent from Tuesday’s inauguration.

Melaye, who briefed newsmen in Abuja, said all the APC senators present at the inauguration voted for the APC contestant, Sen. Ali Ndume, but lost because many APC senators were absent.

“Those that made APC to lose the Deputy Senate Presidency yesterday were those who stayed away from the chamber.

“If they had come, we would have won, we stood by our party, we nominated Sen. Ali Ndume, and the man who seconded the motion is a Senator from Kwara.”

Melaye said only 20 APC members were in the chamber as at the time of the election and they all voted for Ndume. The results, however, suggest otherwise. The APC candidate, Sen. Ali Ndume, polled 20 votes, while the PDP candidate, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu, polled 54 votes to emerge winner.

The PDP has 49 members in the Senate.
