Amaechi's ministerial screening splits Senate

16 October 2015, 10:06

Abuja -  Members of the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions are sharply divided over the screening of former governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi as a minister, reports The Nation.

The committee has not been able sit to consider and deliberate on the petition against Amaechi despite being asked to hasten action on the petition by Senate President Bukola Saraki.

On Tuesday, Saraki mandated the committee to ensure that its report was ready for consideration on Wednesday.

The committee could still not submit its report on Amaechi on Wednesday, leading to the dropping of the former Rivers State governor from the list of those screened.

The development has increased suspicion of a division among members.

Some members of the committee are said to be moving against the screening of Amaechi.

A member of the committee said some of them are not happy about certain things concerning the sitting of the committee.
