Senate

The Senate on Thursday listed the former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi and 17 other ministerial nominees for confirmation.

Amaechi is listed at number 18 among those to be confirmed

The listing of the ex- governor as the last to be confirmed may have been informed by the controversy his nomination has generated.

Some senators, staged a walk-out of the Senate when deliberations were on over the confirmation of a minister nominee, Rotimi Amaechi from Rivers State.

However, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at 4.20 p.m. confirmed the minister nominees and adjourned the plenary till next Tuesday, November 3.
