Former minister of Aviation and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Femi Fani-Kayode has described the just concluded ministerial screening as a pitiful joke, and a crass display of comic relief which is far below the Senate.

The former minister recalled his screening 13 years ago at the Senate, at a time when “the Senate had great men and powerful intellectuals in its ranks.”

Fani Kayode said he was grilled for 2 hours and 30 minutes, his most difficult time on live television, adding that “Smile, show your teeth, bow and go” is NOT screening.”

The former minister said this in a few tweets via his Twitter handle on Tuesday afternoon.

He wrote, “ When I was nominated to be a Minister by OBJ 13 years ago in 2006, I was screened by the Senate for no less than two hours and thirty gruelling and very difficult minutes on live television. There is no question that they did not ask me and there is none that I did not answer. ”

He added that “ In those days the Senate had great men and powerful intellectuals in its ranks. What we see today in the name of Ministerial screening is a pitiful joke. “Smile, show your teeth, bow and go” is NOT screening: it is a crass display of comic relief which is far below the Senate. ”
