He added that the Senate would adhere to constitutional provisions and certificate of asset declaration during the screening.

“Senate will strictly adhere to two modalities, constitutional provisions and certificate of asset declaration during the screening,” Melaye added.

Melaye said the priority will be given to former members of the National Assembly but the screening would be rigorous for other nominees.
