The immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has stormed the National Assembly for his ministerial screening.

According to information gathered, Wike arrived at the National Assembly with his wife and some followers.

The Senate is expected to screen the first set of President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial nominees.

The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was part of the first set of ministerial nominees Tinubu forwarded to the Senate.

During the 2023 February presidential election, Wike had turned against PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and worked for Tinubu.

It's widely believed that Wike’s nomination was a form of compensation for supporting Tinubu.
