Contrary to speculations that former Governor of Rivers State and ministerial nominee, Rotimi Amaechi, might not be confirmed by senators when they resume plenary on Tuesday, October 27 due to the protest against him by Peoples Democratic Party Senators in the Senate, the Majority Leader of the Senate, Senator Ali Ndume, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) members in the Senate would ensure that the former Governor scales through confirmation as Minister.

Speaking with Channels Television in Kaduna, Senator Ndume expressed displeasure with the tension being generated by the Rivers State chapter of the PDP over the nomination of Amaechi as minister. He added that despite all the protests and petitions, the former governor remained qualified to be confirmed as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Ndume said, with the APC having the highest number of Senate members, the PDP cannot stop Amaechi's confirmation or that of other nominees as a minister.
