Former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, arrived the premises of the National Assembly, around 10:30am on Thursday for screening alongside other nominees of President Muhammadu Buhari for ministerial appointments.

The order paper released for the day’s proceedings had on the list,
Amaechi (Rivers );
Heineken Lokpobri (Bayelsa );
Omoleye Daramola (Ondo );
Adewole Folorunso (Osun);
Baba Shehuri Mustapha (Borno); and
Ocholi James (Kogi )

Meanwhile, members of the Peoples Democratic Party in the upper chamber still remain adamant as of the time of filing this report, to oppose the clearance of the erstwhile Rivers governor, for screening.

The tension generated by the development, however, forced the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to order a closed session shortly after resumption of plenary around 10:58 am and they all have been screened but still on awaiting results so nigerians let’s keep on the watch as the results unfold.
