Screening of ministerial nominees’ll be thorough — Senate Leader

The Senate Leader, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, has assured that the Senate will thoroughly scrutinise the ministerial nominees presented to it by President Bola Tinubu to ascertain their competencies and capabilities to serve Nigeria diligently and in a way that will bring dividends of democracy to the populace.

The All Progressives Congress senator representing Ekiti Central Senatorial District said that the upper chamber under its president, Senator Godswill Akpabio, was desirous and keen about ensuring that those holding pivotal positions under Tinubu’s presidency were those with capacities to deliver.

Bamidele spoke in Ado Ekiti on Saturday at the end of a 24-hour marathon praise and worship programme shortly before a Communion Service at Iyin Ekiti, his hometown, to mark his 60th birthday.

The Senate Leader said, “Nigerians are expecting us to do a thorough screening. But take a bow and go is not an unparliamentary convention, it has become a practice all over the world, that person must be a former member of the parliament who is well known to us. Somebody we have confidence in his ability to give Nigerians qualitative leadership.

The lawmaker assured Nigerians that the Federal Government would soon roll out social investment programmes to palliate the sufferings of the masses, especially the poorest of the poor in the country in view of the removal of subsidy on fuel.
