He faulted the screening of some ministerial nominees by simply asking them to “bow and go” calling it “a display of comic relief.”
In those days days the Senate had great men and powerful intellectuals in its ranks.What we see today in the name of Ministerial screening is a pitiful joke. "Smile,show your teeth,bow and go" is NOT screening: it is a crass display of comic relief which is far below the Senate.Femi Fani-Kayode (@realFFK) July 30, 2019
Several ministerial nominees were not grilled by the Senate as they enjoyed the privilege of taking a “bow and go”. Some ministerial nominees were former lawmakers.
The ministers-designate who had enjoyed the privilege include: Godswill Akpabio, Gbemisola Saraki, Hadi Sirika, Olorunnimbe Mamora, George Akume, Chris Ngige, Tayo Alasoadura, Emeka Nwajuiba, a serving Reps member and surprisingly, Rotimi Amaechi, a former minister of Transportation.
