Abuja - The Senate has again postponed the ministerial screening for former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi.
His screening had suffered several hitches in the last one week, caused by the delays from the Senate ad-hoc ethics committee in submitting a report on the petitions written against his nomination.

Apart from Amaechi, the Senate also put off the screening of four other nominees, earlier scheduled for Tuesday’s plenary session.
Instead, the Senate said only three persons will now be screened.
They are Barrister Adebayo Shittu, the nominee from Oyo state, Professor Claudius Omoyele Daramola, the nominee from Ondo State and Khadija Abba Ibrahim, from Yobe State.
