Amaechi: Senate postpones ex-governor's screening again

The Senate has declared that the embattled former governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi will not be screened today. However, he will be at the chamber on Wednesday for his screening.

This was revealed by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Publicity, Dino Melaye.

He said the APC caucus in the Senate has decided to back the nomination of Amaechi while insinuating that there are moves to also lobby the PDP lawmakers to support Amaechi.

Amaechi’s screening had been postponed twice. He has been a source of division among senators on account of petitions against him.
