“It will appear on the Order Paper on Wednesday morning and the Senate will set up the necessary legislative procedure for the screening exercise. I wish to assure Nigerians that the screening exercise will be thorough just the way the nomination process was thorough”.
It would be recalled that Senate President Bukola Saraki had on Wednesday acknowledged receipt of the ministerial nominees list from the Presidency.
