Senators want Buhariscreened if he'd be PetroleumMinister

As Nigerians anticipate the unveiling of the
ministerial list tomorrow, Tuesday, October 6, at
the senate plenary session, it has emerged that
things may get rowdy as some senators are
demanding that President Muhammadu Buhari
must also be screened.

The Senators say since the President appointed
himself Minister of Petroleum, he must submit
himself before the Upper Chamber for screening
just like other ministerial appointees - as
stipulated by the constitution.
According to Vanguard , the senators have also
resolved to reject the list if all the 36 states of
the federation does not have representation
each, arguing that the constitution provides for a
nominee from each state.
The senators promised to promised to adopt
stringent measures in line with the provisions of
the Constitution during the screening of
ministerial nominees, noting that they would not
be cowed by the trial of Senate President, Dr.
Bukola Saraki , at the Code of Conduct Tribunal
(CCT).
