PDP Senator Petitions Senate Against Amaechi’s Ministerial Nomination



The announcement of former governor of Rivers state, Governor Rotimi Amaechi, as one of Buhari’s ministerial nominees has hit a road block as a petition, was on Wednesday, forwarded to the upper chamber protesting against his nomination.

Trouble started at the plenary when Senator George Sekibo (Rivers) announced that he was bearing a petition from the good people of his state against Amaechi’s nomination and sought for the petition to be laid before the Senate as is the tradition.

According to a DAILY POST correspondent, who monitored the plenary proceedings on Wednesday, reports that while senators of the All Progressives Congress, APC, quickly roared against the petition being laid, those of opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, curiously insisted that the petition be laid for hearing.


The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, however intervened by calling for order while he allowed Senator Sekibo to go ahead with the submission, stressing that there was reason why the hearing of the petition should be avoided in the first place.
