The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, is currently in the Presidential Villa after a heated session in the red chamber which resulted in a motion to suspend the screening of ministerial nominee Festus Keyamo from Delta State

The motion was seconded by Enyinnaya Abaribe, a senator from Abia-South Senatorial District.

The motion to suspend the screening was initiated by Darlington Nwokocha, a senator representing Abia Central Senatorial District.

Nwokocha had accused Keyamo of disrespecting the 9th National Assembly and levelling allegations of corruption against the previous administration.

Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria previously served as the Minister of State for Labour and Productivity during ex-President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Nwokocha claimed that Keyamo was summoned to clarify matters pertaining to a Special Public Works programme during that time but failed to honour the invitation.

The programme was overseen by the National Directorate of Employment, which fell under Keyamo’s ministry.
