The Senate has 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.
Aduda’s nomination was sequel to the resignation of the former Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe.
Abaribe, had last week, formally announced his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, announced the appointments while reading two separate letters signed by the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party Samuel Anyanwu.
