President Bola Tinubu is meeting with Senate President Godswill Akpabio at the State House, Abuja.

ADULAWO NEWS reports that the meeting is coming moments after the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly went into a frenzy while screening one of President Tinubu’s ministerial nominees, Festus Keyamo.

Akpabio arrived the Villa around 2.25pm shortly after the Senate adjourned for a close-door session to determine the fate of the former Minister of State.

The ensuing rowdy session in the Senate was as a result of a motion that Keyamo’s nomination be stepped down.

The motion to suspend the screening was initiated by Darlington Nwokocha, a senator representing Abia Central Senatorial District and was seconded another Senator from Abia, Enyinnaya Abaribe, a senator from Abia South Senatorial District.

ADULAWO NEWS reports that some lawmakers had taken offence over the refusal of Keyamo, who was the Minister of State for Labour and Employment in the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, to honour invites by various committees in the 9th Senate and 9th House of Representatives.

Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), previously served as the Minister of State for Labour and Productivity during ex-President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Nwokocha claimed that Keyamo was summoned to clarify matters pertaining to a Special Public Works program during that time but failed to honor the invitation.
