Why We Shifted Amaechi’s Screening – Senate

By Gilbert Alasa.
For the second time this week, the Senate has postponed the screening of former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi and that of Mr. Adebayo Shittu, the Oyo state ministerial nominee.
Speaking to newsmen yesterday, Chairman, Senate Ad-hoc Committee on Media and Publicity, Dino Melaye, said the two nominees would be screened next Tuesday alongside seven others. He added that the remaining nine nominees would be screened next Wednesday and thereafter, the 18 of them already screened would be approved and confirmed for appointment.

Senator Melaye noted that Amaechi could not face the screening exercise due largely to non-submission of the report on corruption petitions against him by the Senate Committee on Ethics and Petitions.
He said: “The committee has a one-line report that the matter is in court and that in compliance with our laid down rules and regulations, any case that is undergoing judicial remedy cannot be discussed. We have distanced ourselves from it and the report will be presented on Tuesday by the grace of God.”
