STRONG indications have emerged that tomorrow’s plenary session,
where the Senate would unveil the ministerial list sent by President
Muhammadu Buhari, may be stormy as senators are saying the President
must, in line with the constitution, submit himself before the Upper
Chamber for screening if he appointed himself Minister of Petroleum.
They are also set to reject an incomplete list, saying the constitution
provides for a nominee from each state of the federation and that any list
that did not cover the 36 states would suffer serious opposition on the
floor of the Senate.
The senators have also vowed that they would not be cowed by the trial
of Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal,
CCT, just as they promised to adopt stringent measures in line with the
provisions of the Constitution during the screening of ministerial
They added that the tradition of take-a-bow for senators coming for
screening as ministers would be jettisoned, adding that they were
prepared to send names of nominees to the sender of such a list.
Senate President, Dr. Saraki, is currently facing trial at CCT, following a
13-count charge levelled against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau,
CCB, bordering on alleged corruption and false declaration of assets in
2003 and summoned him to appear before it, which he did.
