APC Senators, nominate Ali Ndume as Majority leader despite party order

Posted by admin | 9 years ago | 2,457 times

All Progressives Congress senators have nominated Ali Ndume as the Majority Leader of the Senate, in disrespect of the party’s directive that Ahmed Lawan be given the role.

Mr. Lawan lost the senate presidency election to Bukola Saraki, despite being the party’s official candidate.

The party insists its preferred candidates who failed to be elected president and speaker for the Senate and House of Representatives respectively, be elected Majority Leaders in both chambers.

The crisis has stalled legislative business in both arms of the National Assembly for weeks.

The Senate on today officially nominated Mr. Ndume, from Borno State, as Majority Leader.

It also nominated Bala Ibn Na’alla as deputy leader. Mr. Na’alla, a former House of Representatives member, is from Kebbi state.

The Senate also nominated Francis Alimikhena, from Edo State, as Deputy Chief Whip.
