Senator Ali Ndume has been removed as Senate Majority Leader. In a letter to the Senate on Tuesday, the All Progressives Congress caucus named Senator Ahmed Lawan as the new Majority Leader.
The decision was arrived at during the party’s caucus meeting on Monday, January 9.
However, Ndume said the decision to remove him was shocking, as he is unaware of what led to the decision or where the meeting was held to remove him.
Senate President Bukola Saraki may announce Mr. Lawan as the new Senate Leader at the next sitting of the legislators.
