Festus Keyamo who was the former Minister of State for Labour and Employment under the administration of ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, has apologised to lawmakers in the Senate.
Keyamo who appeared before the Senate for screening on Monday faced a tough moment following a motion demanding that the screening of Keyamo be suspended.
Recall that ADULAWO NEWS had earlier reported that there was drama in the Senate as lawmakers disagreed over the screening of Keyamo as a ministerial nominee.

Some lawmakers during the screening challenged Keyamo for refusing to honour invites by various committees in the 9th Senate and 9th House of Representatives led by Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila respectively.
Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe in his petition charged the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, to suspend Keyamo’s screening until he acknowledged that the Senate can summon and question any Minister and his/her Ministry.
