Former Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, says President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not regret nominating him as a minister.
He described himself as a performer.
Wike, who was speaking during his ministerial screening before the Senate, said he executed and commissioned series of capital projects, across Rivers when he was the governor.
“Everyday I was commissioning projects . Mr President will not regret nominating me as a minister,” he said.
Senator Mpigi Barinada (PDP, Rivers) said over five million people from the state supported Wike’s ministerial nomination, urging his colleagues to let him go.
Akpabio then asked the former Rivers governor to take a bow and go, following a voice vote.
Earlier, a senator asked Wike if he was ready to continue “the wonderful thing you did in Rivers”, to which he responded affirmatively.
He was the second nominee to be screened on the first day of the exercise.
A total of 16 of the 28 nominees are lined up for screening today.
The senate had earlier extended its sitting time to be able to accommodate the nominees.
