The document that may spoil their chances, their lives, education, interests and how Senate plans to screen them
This is an exclusive presentation of a classified document on President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial nominees as prepared by the Senate. According to the document, some of the nominees are said to have corruption cases leveled against them.
In the document, some of the corruption allegations range from illegal award of military and civilian contracts, as well as controversial statements made in times past.
Also, the judicial inquisition into the activities of some of them as well as how they performed in public office form part of the entries in the document.
Now, without prejudice to the screening the Senate plans to commence this week, Sunday Vanguard has responsibly held back on the controversial entries pending the screening, some of which are very damaging and are based on the excess baggage of the nominees. In fact, Sunday Vanguard gathered that before the commencement of proceedings on Tuesday, each senator should have been given this document.
Senators would be guided on the questions and the issues to be raised with each nominee, using the information contained in the document to grill them. The screening is expected to be very transparent and each nominee answering for his actions or in actions while occupying public office in times past. After the screening, Sunday Vanguard plans to publish the withheld controversial entries against the name of each nominee.
