Aug 7, 2023 | Uncategorized


  • The senate has resumed the screening of President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial nominees, with just two names left
  • The Senate on Monday, August 7, screened Mariya Mahmud Bunkere (Kano) out of the seven listed on the order paper of Saturday
  • However, when it was the turn of Festus Keyamo, he read his profile but had a slight delay as the Senate went into an executive session

The Nigerian Senate is currently screening Delta State nominee, Festus Keyamo, SAN.

This is coming a few minutes after the ministerial nominee from Kano State Dr. Mariya Mahmoud Bunkure was screened at the red chamber on Monday afternoon, August 7, 2023.

Keyamo’s screening raises issues among members of the senate on Monday, August 7 and is pending

Some of the Senators raised a motion backed by Senator Darlighton Nwkocha to look into the affairs of Keyamo’s past ministerial works.

As monitored by Legit.ng correspondent on NTA TV, the federal lawmakers noted that Keyamo deliberately stayed away and rejected the summons of both the House of Representatives and the Senate when he was a minister.

The Senate went into an executive session

The lawmakers concluded that Keyamo should be stepped down until the National Assembly has carried out an inquiry into Keyamo’s former ministerial appointment and ministry.

At the time of filling this report, the Senate moves into an executive session.

The sitting period of the senate was then extended beyond 2:00 pm as backed by Senate President Godswill Akpabio.

However, the Senate has moved into an executive session to discuss the issue of national concerns and Keyamo’s screening.
