Why Senators Didn't Grill Wike - Akpabio

The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, has explained why the senators did not grill the immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, during the ministerial nominees screening.

Akpabio cited Wike’s experiences as a governor and a minister under former President, Goodluck Jonathan.

The former Rivers governor was asked to take a “bow and go” after reading his brief profile and following an appeal by Senator Barinada Mpigi (PDP, Rivers).

Akpabio noted that Wike was not thoroughly grilled because of his records having formerly served as a minister.

He said Wike had appeared before the Senate for screening when he was nominated as a minister by ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan.

“Having been nominated again for a ministerial position, there is no point asking him many questions,” Akpabio said.
