There was apprehension when today, the Nigerian Senate announced the names of ministerial nominees that will be screened and Rotimi Amaechi’s name was not included.
In an interview with NTA, Senator Dino Melaye explained why former Governor Amaechi was not screened by the Nigerian Senate today. He says it will still happen.
“The reason why we reduced the number of nominees is because we responded to the agitations and yearnings and the aspirations of Nigerians.
We have monitored the reactions of Nigerians on the issue of the ministerial screening and we found out that Nigerians believed that we are rushing the process and it was not as thorough as they would desire. We have agreed that we reduce to three or four per day so that the interaction and screening exercise will be more thorough and Nigerians will appreciate who is going to be their minister,” he said
