Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has berated the confirmation of all the 43 ministerial nominees by the Nigerian Senate.
It would be recalled that the confirmation was concluded earlier on Tuesday after the conclusion of the screening conducted by the upper chamber.
Fani-Kayode who made his view known through his Twitter handle described the exercise as a pitiful joke
Read his tweet below;
“When I was nominated to be a Minister by OBJ 13 years ago in 2006 I was screened by the Senate for no less than two hours and thirty grueling and very difficult minutes on live television. There is no question that they did not ask me and there is none that I did not answer.”
“In those days days the Senate had great men and powerful intellectuals in its ranks. What we see today in the name of Ministerial screening is a pitiful joke. ‘Smile, show your teeth, bow and go’ is NOT screening: it is a crass display of comic relief which is far below the Senate.”
