Senators from Rivers State have submitted a petition to the Senate against the nomination of the former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi as minister.

Mr Amaechi was one of the twenty one ministerial nominees unveiled on Tuesday by Senate President Bukola Saraki.

The petition was written by a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), the Integrity Group based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital.

Presenting the petition on the floor of the Senate yesterday, a federal lawmaker from Rivers State, Senator George Sekibo, informed the Senate that the petition bordered principally on corruption and criminal breach of trust levelled against Mr Amaechi.

The Senate President referred the petition to the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges for consideration.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Wednesday unveiled the partial list of 21 ministerial nominees, including Mr. Amaechi.
