Ministerial screening: Nominees mount pressure on Senate
Written by admin on October 12, 2015
Some ministerial nominees have intensified pressure on the Senate to relax some of the conditions listed for them to scale before they are confirmed. The pressure is coming ahead of commencement of the screening exercise by the Senate, which kicks off tomorrow.
It was gathered at the weekend that besides their individual efforts, some of the ministerial nominees have enlisted the support of some key politicians to reach-out to the senators to soft pedal on some of the conditionalities set by the Senate. Key among the conditions, which is causing panic among the nominees, is the requirement that each candidate must enjoy the support of at least, two of the three senators representing their states.
