POLITICS: ANTICIPATIONS As Amaechi to be the First to be Screened Toady

After a series of delay owing to a petition alleging corruption, Chibuike Amaechi, ministerial nominee and former Rivers state governor, is scheduled to be screened today. His name was number one on the list of ministerial nominees to be screened on Thursday. Other nominees on the senate order paper for screening are Heineken Lokpobiri, Cladius Omoyele Daramola, Adewole Isaac Folorunso, Baba Shehuri Mustapha and Ocholi Enojo James.
Although TheCable understands that the list is still subject change, Amaechi has been sighted at the senate in the company of Dakuku Peterside. Amaechi had been exempted from screening a number of times largely owing to “internal politics” and the failure of the senate committee on ethics, privileges and public petitions to submit its report on an investigation of him.
He was alleged to have stolen N70 billion of Rivers funds while he was governor in a petition presented to the senate by George Sekibo, senator representing Rivers east. On several occasions, the committee failed to submit the report, delaying the former governor’s screening. But it is expected that it will turn in the report on Thursday.
This is not the first time, though, that Amaechi has featured on the order paper for the screening without undergoing the process. On Tuesday, his name was struck out of the order paper containing the names of nominees to be screened.
Amaechi’s name, alongside that of seven other nominees, was on the initial order paper seen by TheCable, but that paper was subsequently replaced by another that did not contain the name of the former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) man. Apart from Amaechi, other names on the first order paper were Adebayo Shittu, Heineken Lokpobiri, Khadija Abba Ibrahim, Bawa Bwari, Ocholi James, Mansur Muhammed and Zainab Ahmed. However, the second order paper contains only three of those eight names: Adebayo Shittu, Claudius Omoleye Daramola, and Khadija Abba Ibrahim.
