Breaking News: Senate Gets New Minority Leader, Chief Whip

By Abdulrasheed Yusuf

The Senate on Tuesday named the lawmaker representing the Federal Capital Territory, Senator Philip Aduda, as the new Minority Leader of the Senate to replace Senator Eyinaya Abaribe.

Senator Chukwuka Utazi was also named as the Senate Minority Whip to take over Aduda’s former position.

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

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