TREND­ING As Amaechi fi­nally takes a bow…>>>

Daily Trust - - GLANZ -

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.
