Screening of Ministerial Nominees: Senate Suspends It's Rules To Fastrack Process

The Spokesman of the Senate and Senator representing Ekiti South senatorial district, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, has said that the Senate will sacrifices its annual legislative recess for national development.

Adeyeye made this known today while addressing newsmen after the Tuesday plenary. He said the Senate will sit on Friday and Monday against its Tuesday to Thursday sitting days.

Recall that the Senate had postponed its annual vacation scheduled to commence on Thursday to enable it screen the 43 names on the ministerial list submitted to the Senate by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“I want to tell you that this is a major sacrifice by the senators, we are postponing our recess so that we can finish the screening exercise between Wednesday and end of next week”

“We are suspending a lot of our rules, plenary normally does not hold on Fridays, plenary will hold on Friday this week and Monday next week in other to hasten the process. We want to do a thorough job and we want Nigerians to know that we are doing a thorough job. It is going to be a lot of sacrifice on our path.

“We are going to work in unusual hours; normally we sit from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, that will not apply till during this confirmation hearing. We are going to sit till very late, virtually every day. On Friday, we will sit till we are tired. We will go on a brief recess and might proceed until 10 p.m.

“We have given ourselves enough time, we will work in unusual hours,” the Senate Spokesman had submitted.
