Amaechi omitted from Ministerial screening
It appears as if the controversy surrounding confirmation of former Governor of Rivers Rotimi Amaechi might not be abating anytime soon,as his name was omitted from the list on the Order Paper, which gives details of the business of the day at the Senate.With this latest developement it brings to the third time Mr. Amaechi’s screening was suspended by the Senate.
According to premium times the Senate Order Paper showed names of eight ministerial nominees billed for screening, but another paper later emerged showing only three names of ministerial nominees.
In the earlier schedule, the names of Adebayo Shittu, Heineken Lokpobiri, Rotimi Amaechi, Khadija Ibrahim, Baba Bwari, Ocholi James, Mansur Mohammed and Zainab Ahmed were listed, while the subsequent paper only showed the names of Adebayo Shittu, Khadijat Ibrahim and Claudius Daramola.
The submission of report of the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions on Mr. Amaechi was also not listed in the Order Paper.
Even though Senator Dino Melaye confirmed rotimi Amaechi will be screened today,no explanation has been proferred as to the reason why he has been omitted from today's screening.
