According to the Chairman of the senate Adhoc committee on media and publicity, Dino Melaye, the Senate decided to reduce to names of ministerial nominees for screening today to three so as to make the screening exercise more thorough.
“The reason why we reduced the number of nominees is because we responded to the agitations and yearnings and the aspirations of Nigerians. We have monitored the reactions of Nigerians on the issue of the ministerial screening and we found out that Nigerians believed that we are rushing the process and it was not as thorough as they would desire. We have agreed that we reduce to three or four per day so that the interaction and screening exercise will be more thorough and Nigerians will appreciate who is going to be their minister” he said.
