Ex-Minister, Abba Moro emerges Senate Minority Leader

Senator representing Benue-South senatorial district, Abba Moro, yesterday, emerged as Senate Minority Leader.

Moro, 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.

The newly elected Minority leader was a former Minister of Interior during the former President Goodluck Jonathan administration.
