#Ministerialscreening: Senate screens Geoffrey Onyeama

The senate has screened Geoffrey Onyeama, a Cambridge University trained lawyer from Enugu state. Onyeama said the image of Nigeria is still largely very positive. He said Nigerians in the diaspora are doing the country proud and that Nigeria is literally and figuratively the giant of Africa.

As an intellectual property lawyer, he said more efforts have to be made to fight piracy and counterfeiting in Nollywood as well as in the health sector.

He promised to never engage in any corrupt practice no matter how much money is put before him. Onyeama said a concerted effort has to be made to reform Nigeria's justice system. He said the independence of the judiciary should not be negotiated.
