Akpabio Meets With Tinubu Over Keyamo’s Screening



Following the rowdy session at the Senate over the screening of a ministerial nominee, Festus Keyamo, Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, has rushed to the Presidential Villa, Abuja to meet with President Bola Tinubu.

The Senate President is in the Villa to meet with President Tinubu over the rowdy session on the floor of the Senate on Monday afternoon when Keyamo appeared for screening.

Earlier today during the plenary and screening of ministerial nominees, there was a motion to suspend Keyamo’s screening which was initiated by Darlington Nwokocha, a senator representing Abia Central Senatorial District.

Nwokocha accused Keyamo of disrespecting the 9th National Assembly and accusing the last Assembly of being corrupt.

Nwokocha said during the administration of ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, Keyamo was invited to explain a Special Public Works programme but he didn’t honour the invitation.

Nwokocha’s motion was immediately seconded by his colleague from Abia South Senatorial District, Enyinnaya Abaribe.

The Senate President subsequently subjected the motion to a voice vote but the lawmakers were divided on the matter.
