Ahead of today’s screening of the immediate past Governor of Rivers State, Rt Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi; Senate Majority Leader, Senator Ali Ndume, yesterday, criticised senators elected on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, saying that the 8th Senate belongs to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

According to him, the PDP should note that it has become a minority, a situation where the majority would always have its way, warning that PDP cannot disqualify Amaechi based on what he described as triviality instead of the Constitution. He added that Amaechi has not been convicted by any Court of law.

Ali Ndume made this known against the backdrop of suggestions that the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu should have presided at yesterday at the screening of the ministerial nominees in the absence of Dr. Bukola Saraki. He boasted that the Senators will determine the fate of Amaechi and not necessarily the report of the Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions.

Today, Chairman, Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, Senator Samuel Anyanwu (PDP, Imo East) will submit the reports of his committee on petitions against the nominees including Amaechi.
