There was a mild drama at the Senate on Friday as Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial district, Dino Melaye demanded that one of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial nominee, Festus Keyamo, recite the National anthem.
Keyamo, who is among Buhari’s 43-man list submitted to the Senate on Tuesday for screening and approval, appeared before members of the upper legislative chamber on Friday.
Melaye told Keyamo, “I know you to be intellectually mobile, I want you to recite the national anthem.”
However, President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, overruled Melaye’s request. Lawan said that the request was not a question.
