Recently, President Mohammadu Buhari appointed Olorunnimbe Mamora, a former Senator as one of the 43 ministerial nominees.
However, Mamora rejected the offer from the president.
Reacting to the report, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe applauded Maora during the screening for rejecting the initial appointment.
Abaribe said Olorunnimbe Mamora felt relegated by the appointment earlier offered by Buhari.
“We are very glad that finally, they have recognised who you are. You sat on this seat and did very well. And they used local materials to localise you, you didn’t give up.
“Senator Mamora is our very good friend and he is my neighbour. We know of situations where senators left here and were offered positions that a senator shouldn’t take and they took it.
“But Senator Mamora was offered position and he rejected it because he looked at each and everyone one of us and say if I take that position, it will demean this Senate,” he said.
Recall that Buhari had earlier appointed him as the chairman of the Abuja Investment and Infrastructure Centre, an appointment, which he rejected in 2018.
