PIC.14.THE SENATE PRESIDENT, BUKOLA SARAKI USING THE GAVEL AT THE INAUGURATION OF THE 8TH NATIONAL ASSEMBLY IN ABUJA

AFTER a two-day screening, the Senate yesterday confirmed 18 ministerial nominees, among them former Governors Babatunde Fashola (Lagos) and Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti).

The other ministers-designate are Senator Udoma Udo Udoma (Akwa Ibom), Chief Audu Ogbeh (Benue), Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu (Ebonyi), Dr. Osagie Ehanire (Edo), Alhaji Lai Mohammed (Kwara), Lt. Gen. Adulrahman Danbazzau (Kano), Amina Ibrahim Mohammed (Gombe), Mr. Suleiman Hussaini Adamu, Mr. Ibrahim Usman Jibrin, Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigeria National Corporation (NNPC) Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN) , Senator Chris Ngige, Senator Aisha Jummai Alhassan, Mr. Solomon Dalong, Mrs Kemi Adeosun and Senator Hadi Sirika.

The confirmation of Mohammed, the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Publicity Secretary, was as dramatic as his screening on Tuesday.

Mohammed’s screening  on Tuesday was an exchange of banters between him and the senators.   But yesterday, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) senators shouted ‘nay’ when Senate President Bukola Saraki called out his name for confirmation. But APC senators rose stoutly in his defence with  their ‘yes’ shout.

Eight of the ministersl-designate were yesterday screened. The Oyo State nominee, Alhaji Adebayo Shittu, was not screened apparently for lack of time. He is likely to be screened today.

Former Rivers State Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi’s screening was deferred because the petition against him had not been considered by the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions.  Amaechi is also likely to be screened today.

Musa Ibeto’s nomination was withdrawn by the President. He replaced the Niger State nominee with Bawa Bwari, a former House of Representatives member.

Ministers-designate such as  Ngige, Sirika and Alhassan were asked to introduce themselves, make some remarks and “take a bow and go” being former senators.
