Why There Should Be Stay Of Action On Amaechi’s Screening

The Committee on Ethics and Public Petitions may have advised a stay of action on Amaechi’s screening. Newsplanetb through Daily Sun gathered that the committee, which will officially present its report to the Senate tomorrow, made the recommendation based on the difficulty of his case. One of the members of the committee led by Senator Samuel Anyanwu disclosed that members took into consideration the white paper submitted to it by the Rivers state government, which accused the former governor of corruption. In addition to that, the senator said the committee considered the advantages and disadvantages of other petitions against Amaechi. The insider said: “We made some recommendations on the case and that of other nominees. We felt that there should be a stay of action on the screening until some issues are addressed.” Anyanwu also wondered: “Why are you people al­ways interested in Amaechi’s case? There are other petitions before the committee. We have other ministerial nominees that have been written peti­tions against. All the petitions will be submitted on Tuesday. That is all I can tell you. We are meeting tomorrow (today) to conclude on the final report. “I am sure that by Tues­day, it will be ready. I cannot tell you what we are going to submit to the Senate. There is nothing I can tell you. By Tuesday, you will hear about the report when it will be pre­sented to the Senate. We ought to have finalised the issue by the weekend. But I travelled to my state. I just came back today (yesterday). Everything will be handled all together. We have invited the nominee from Sokoto state. She will appear before the committee tomorrow (today). Her own report will be ready too by Tuesday,” he said.
