The senate has finally considered former governor of Rivers State and a ministerial nominee, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi for screening on Thursday.
Amaechi’s whose name is number two on the list of ministerial nominees to be screened on Thursday faced series of delay as a result of petition alleging corruption leveled against his person.
As reported by Vanguard Daily, others are who are also listed for screening are Heineken Lokpobiri, Cladius Omoyele Daramola, Adewole Isaac Folorunso, Baba Shehuri Mustapha and Ocholi Enojo James.
Amaechi, who is a ministerial nominee from Rivers State have been having a running battle with the State government and its lawmakers, who are opposed to his nomination and appointment by President Muhamadu Buhari.
But Amaechi through his lawyer, Edward E.
