Abuja - The Senate on Thursday screened five more ministerial nominees.
Among those screened was the immediate past Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, whose nomination has generated a lot of controversies.
Others screened were Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, Prof. Claudius Omoleye Daramola, Hon. Baba Shehiru Mustapha and James Ocholi.

Amaechi, who appeared after three previous postponements, was hailed by senators when he entered the Senate chamber.
While fielding questions from Senators, Amaechi insisted that he has never been indicted for corruption by any panel of inquiry.
The nominees have, however, not been confirmed as ministers yet.
The Senate will continue with the screening of the remaining 14 ministerial nominees on Tuesday.
