Buhari’s ministerial nominees get over 10 petitions at Senate

The Senate’s Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Petitions has reportedly received not less than 10 petitions from individuals and groups against the 21 ministerial nominees presented for screening by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The first batch of the President’s ministerial nominees, comprising of 21 names, were read out to the Senate on Tuesday, October 6.
Apart from the petition against the former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, which was openly submitted on Wednesday, several other petitions have been forwarded to the Senate.
A report by Punch states that a parliamentary staff, who is privy to the dealings of the Ethics committee revealed that the petitions had been properly documented for consideration.
The source was quoted to have said: “I don’t really know the accurate number of petitions we have received so far, I am not in the office at the moment but they should be up to 10.”

  1. All petitions should be well documented and treated in accordance with the provision of the law. No biased judgement and hearing, no sentiments involved as well.
