News making the rounds suggest that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, working through Livingstone Wechie, has reportedly secured a court order to stop the Senate from screening former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi as a ministerial nominee.
Wechie through his organisation, Integrity Group had claimed, that Amaechi corruptly enriched himself while in office as Governor.
But Amaechi in response, denied every allegation levelled against him, describing it as a witch-hunt.
The order which was reportedly secured from a Rivers State High Court, is expected to be presented at the Senate before its sitting, on Thursday, but that was prior to the postponement of ministerial screening till next week Tuesday.
According to DailyPost, a conflicting report from a source hinted that the court papers had already been served on the Senate before the close of work on Wednesday.
Amaechi was initially one of the 10 ministerial nominees scheduled to be screened on Wednesday but his screening was deferred as a result of the delay in the report of the Senate’s Ethics and Privileges Committee.
