Group Secures Court Order Stopping Senate from Screening Amaechi
Livingstone Wechie has secured a court order to stop the Senate from screening former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi as a ministerial nominee according to media reports.
Wechie through his organisation, Integrity Group had claimed, that Amaechi corruptly enriched himself while in office as Governor.
Amaechi had denied every of the allegations, describing it as a witch-hunt.
The court order, reportedly secured from a Rivers State High Court, is expected to be served on the senate before it’s sitting, today, Thursday.
Amaechi was initially one of the ten ministerial nominees scheduled to be screened on Wednesday but his screening was deferred as a result of the delay in the report of the Senate’s Ethics and Privileges Committee.
