Rotimi Amaechi, former governor of Rivers state, is unlikely to be screened as a ministerial nominee yet again, as his name has been struck out of the order paper containing the names of nominees to be screened on Tuesday.

Amaechi’s name, alongside that of seven other nominees, was on the initial order paper seen by TheCable, but that paper was subsequently replaced by another that did not contain the name of the former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) man.

Apart from Amaechi, other names on the first order paper were Adebayo Shittu, Heineken Lokpobiri, Khadija Abba Ibrahim, Bawa Bwari, Ocholi James, Mansur Muhammed and Zainab Ahmed.

However, the second order paper contains only three of those eight names: Adebayo Shittu, Claudius Omoleye Daramola, and Khadija Abba Ibrahim.

Amaechi’s “storm” at the‎ upper chamber started when a group, through senators representing Rivers state, petitioned the senate, accusing him of fraud and corruption.

The senate committee on ethics, privileges and public petitions‎ had suspended probe of the former governor on the grounds that the allegations against him were a case in court, but it has failed to submit its report on the matter, further delaying the screening of the nominee.

On Monday,‎ Samuel Anyanwu, chairman of the committee, said that the report was ready, but it was not presented on Tuesday.

    If the senate is reluntant to confirm him, that is just fine. PMB and Amaechi should worry. The President sould fine a more useful space for him in the Government.
