Yemi Adaramodu, the spokesperson of the Senate, says the upper legislative chamber will start the screening of the 28 ministerial nominees forwarded by President Bola Tinubu on Monday.
Adaramodu (APC-Ekiti), made this known while speaking with national assembly correspondents after the list of the nominees was read in the upper chamber on Thursday.
“Though the Senate wasn’t supposed to sit on Mondays, 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, 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 have a very good resume, you don’t have the character to carry the resume.”
