Ministerial nominees: Ideh urges fairness to all at screening

Itsekiri leader and All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain in Delta State, Dr. Alex Ideh, has urged the National Assembly members in the Senate, to ensure fairness in the screening of the ministerial nominees today. In a statement issued in Warri yesterday, Ideh, while calling for a detailed screening process, advised the senators to eschew partisanship and bias but to deal with the exercise with the objectivity and the national patriotism that it deserved. Canvassing support for his Delta State nominee, Dr. Ibe Kachiku, Ideh urged senators from the state to celebrate the NNPC boss as a pride to all Delta State indigenes. He described Kachikwu as a man of “high integrity, a competent and consummate technocrat” whose wealth of experience will ultimately advance the energy sector thereby buoying up the economic fortunes of the nation. He admonished Kachiku to discoutenance those attempting to blackmail President Buhari on account of his well-deserved elevation to a ministerial position. He urged all Party members in Delta State to rally support for Kachikwu in the best interest of the state in particular and that of the nation in general. The statement reads in part: “I congratulate all the 21 nominees. Kudos to Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the Chairman of our Committee – the National Convention and Primaries Committee – where it all began; as well as Alhaji Lai Mohamed, the spokesman of our party who was also a member of our committee. “I congratulate those colleagues of mine in the medical profession: Senator Chris Ngige and Dr. Osagie Ehanire. The tenets of the Hipocratic Oath will not be lost on you as you take on this challenge of serving in the Federal Executive council.”
