Ministerial list: How APC reacted on Buhari’s nomination of Amaechi, Senate screening
The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress APC has hailed the ministerial nomination of Rotimi Amaechi by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The APC in a statement on Thursday by its spokesman, Chris Finebone, also commended his clearance by the Nigerian Senate.
APC said Amaechi brought innovation and focus into the development of transportation infrastructure in Buhari’s first term.
“Our fervent belief and prayer therefore is that he returns to the ministry of transportation to complete the ardous task of modernising and lifting the nation’s transportation sector to the next level.
“We believe and trust that Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi will deliver, once again” Finebone added.
Amaechi was among nominees asked to take a bow and go during screening at the Senate chamber.
Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, explained the decision.
“We have agreed on a policy on how we go about the screening of nominees.
“We agreed that any nominee with the legislative background will enjoy the privilege that we normally extend to such nominees.
“I can see this nominee is so clever that he emphasized that he’s been a Speaker,” Lawan said.
