APC Senators Kicks Against Petition Submitted Against Rotimi Amaechi Ministerial Nomination

Following the unveiling of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial nominees yesterday by the Senate, which included the former governor of Rivers State, Mr Rotimi Ameachi, a petition, was on Wednesday, forwarded to the Upper Chamber protesting against his nomination.

Amaechi’s stewardship is unequaled in Rivers history – APC

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.

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.

APC senators were heard by chanting "No, no, no,no", in condemnation of the petition.

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

Sittings has been adjourned till tomorrow, 10 a.m prompt.
