Senator Abba Moro of Benue South Senatorial District was elected Senate Minority Leader on Tuesday.
Moro, a two-term Senator on the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) platform, was nominated and confirmed by the opposition party in the red chamber.
He succeeded Senator Simon Davou Mwadkwon of Plateau North Senatorial District, who was dismissed 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.
Recall that the newly elected Minority leader was a former Minister of Interior during the former President Goodluck Jonathan administration.
