Abaribe’s Defection: Senate Announces New Minority Leader

By Collins Mbakwe

The Senate has confirmed its new minority leader and minority whip.

This comes after the Senate on Tuesday named Senator Philip Tenimu Aduda (FCT) as the new Minority Leader.

Senator Chukwuka Utazi was also named the Senate Minority Whip.

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, announced the appointments while reading two separate letters signed by the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Samuel Anyanwu.

The seat of the Minority Leader became vacant following the defection of Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe (Abia South) from the PDP.
