Rivers State Ministerial Nominee Dropped


The Senate confirmed on Tuesday that the Ministerial nominee from Rivers State, Tonye Cole has been dropped from the list of those to be screened. The removal of Cole’s name might not be unconnected with the criticisms that followed his nomination.
Though the Senate has not stated that he has been replaced, it is being peddled within the governmental circles in Rivers State that Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s Chief of Staff, Ezebunwo Wiike might be named as replacement.
The announcement came after the Senate acknowledged the receipt of the name of World Bank’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as a ministerial nominee from the President.
