The immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has arrived at the National Assembly for his ministerial screening.
Wike arrived at the National Assembly with his wife and some followers.
The Senate is expected to screen the first set of President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial nominees.
The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was part of the first set of ministerial nominees President Bola Tinubu forwarded to the Senate.
During the 2023 February presidential election, Wike turned against PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and worked for Tinubu.
Its widely believed that Wike’s nomination was a form of compensation for working for Tinubu.
Tinubu last week submitted a 28-nominee ministerial list to the Senate.
