The Senate has said that it will start the screening of the 28 ministerial nominees proposed by President Bola Tinubu on Monday.
Sen. Adeyemi Adaramodu (APC-Ekiti), the spokesperson of the Senate, made this known while speaking with journalists after the list of the nominees was read in the upper chamber on Thursday.
Adaramodu also revealed that though the Senate wasn’t supposed to sit on Mondays, but due to the importance attached to the national assignment, “we’ve suspended all our rules for them to commence the exercise next Monday.
He said, “The Senate is going to examine the character, personality, the experiences, the background of every nominee, and we believe at the end of it, Nigerians will not be disappointed.
“We expect that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) that will be constituted after the screening is going to be the one that will breathe oxygen into the comatose economy of Nigeria.
“The list is here, until they come forward with their resume, it’s not going to be a shadow screening that you’ve a very good resume, you don’t have the character to carry the resume.”
DAILY POST had reported that the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio read the list on Thursday as forwarded to the chamber by the presidency during plenary.
Femi Gbajabiamila, the Chief of Staff to the president, delivered the list to Akpabio.
