Meanwhile, other nominees who were former lawmaker were given a question waiver as Former Speaker, Senate Minority Leader, senators and House of Reps Lawmaker. some of the nominees are, Godswill Akpabio, George Akume and Rotimi Ameachi.
This Action has, however, generate reactions from Nigerians on the calibre of people given the waiver. Here are the reactions as follows
Confusion in Abia oo
Is our Ministerial Nominee Dr Okechukwu Ogah or Dr Uchechukwu Ogah??
Uchechukwu Ogah was APC Guber candidate and seems the likely one. However Okechukwu Ogah is an accomplished Cadiologist and has the requirements for Health minister

Uchechukwu Ogah is the only one screened, answering over 20 questions.
Hon. Emeka Nwajiuba, Senators Godswill Akpabio and George Akume only came to take a bow.
And in less than two hours, the Senate suspended sitting for over an hour for lunch.#MinisterialScreening indeed.

Well since Uchechukwu Ogah showed up he is the right person. But next time they should get the names correctly before someone will start going to court and showing you his own letter of appointment. ??

#MinisterialScreening: Senator George Akume(Benue State) is the second nominee but he was asked to “Take a Bow and Go” as customary for those who are former lawmakers. Senator Orker Jev (Benue State,PDP) was the one who first asked that Akume shouldn’t be questioned. pic.twitter.com/74EDvvUoaX
