The Senate on Monday cleared the former governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, for a ministerial role.
Wike after reeling out his achievements, noted that his passion for Nigeria propelled him to accept the ministerial offer, noting that, “I accepted the offer to serve as a ministerial nomination because of my passion to serve Nigeria.”
Meanwhile, the lawmakers representing River State represented by Senator Barinada Mpigi ( PDP, Rivers Southeast) during the screening told Nigerians that Wike was the best in the state.
He said, “His Excellency former Governor Nyesom Wike is our best in Rivers State. He is our leader and role model.
“Distinguished senators, we employ that you should let him just take a bow and go.
“His resume is insufficient to enumerate the works that he has done.”
The Senate President, GodsWill Akpabio, thereafter, told him to take a bow and leave.
