TRENDING As Amaechi finally takes a bow…>>>
Senate President Bukola Saraki asked Rotimi Amaechi to take a bow and go after he fielded several questions from the members.
His screening at the senate floor delayed due to circumstances and kicks from some quarters over alleged corrupt practices while he was Governor of River State.
Reports said there were attempts by some members of the senate to halt the screening and eventual ministerial confirmation but was brought to calm.
The confirmation process at the National Assembly was monitored with live feeds on Facebook; it generated a bang among netizens as many commented on Amaechi’s varied responses.
Netizen Kabiru Ali Kachako posted: “Well done Senate President” after Amaechi was confirmed. Aliyu Umar Gatawa also shares the view posting: “Congrats Senate President over Rotimi, carry bow and go.”
Reacting to Amaechi’s response to the definition of corruption, netizen Gor Saaondo Simeone posted: “If they give you any small girl and you sleep with her and provide her social amenities it is corruption.”
In a reaction on the confirmation, one Freedom Banks posted: “Screening Amaechi to a minister is a complete show of shame, barbarism, uncivilisations, mediocrity and pettiness. A big ridicule to true leadership, governance, democracy and freedom.”
But Fati Ladidi Mohammed has a different view as she peeps into the future. “Alhamdulilah, Amaechi at last come 2019 Amaechi for president,” she posted.
While netizen Barr. Emmanuel Yavala said the process was fun with this post: “Am having great fun, enjoying myself watching the Ministerial screening,” Ahmad Yahaya Usman rated Amaechi high on eloquence. “Yes. He thought well before he spoke,” he remarked.
