Eventful In Partnership with FirstBankThe Senate has, again deferred the ministerial screening of former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi that was scheduled for today.
The action of the Red Chamber, which was the second time since the screening of the first batch of ministerial nominees began, was due to the inability of the Simon Anyanwu-led Committee on Ethics and Public Petitions to submit its report on petitions against Amaechi.
However, before the Senate resumed plenary Wednesday, Senator Anyanwu informed the Senate President that the report of his committee which received and treated petitions against Mr. Rotimi Amaechi was still not ready to be submitted to the floor of the Senate.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who presided over the plenary, asked Senator Anyanwu to ensure the committee’s report was ready the next day for subsequent treatment.
Meanwhile, another controversial nominee included in the first ministerial list, the former governor of Lagos State Babatunde Fashola is currently undergoing quizzical time with the senate.
