On Tuesday Senator representing Benue South Senatorial District, Abba Moro, emerged Senate Minority leader.
Moro, who’s a two term Senator on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was nominated by the opposition party in the red Chamber and was subsequently affirmed.
He took over from Senator Simon Davou Mwadkwon representing Plateau North Senatorial District who was removed by the Appeal Court.
Earlier, the Senate had zoned the Minority leader to the North Central. Senator Mwadkwon, though a first timer to the Senate, was nominated by the minority caucus.
It was reported that the newly elected Minority leader was a former Minister of Interior during the former President Goodluck Jonathan administration.
