SENATE APPOINTS SENATORS ABBA MORO, OSITA NGWU AS MINORITY LEADER AND MINORITY CHIEF WHIP                                                        22-11-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                                      The Senate has announced the appointment of Senator Abba Morro representing Benue South as new Minority leader and Senator Osita Ngwu representing Enugu North as Minority Chief Whip.
The appointment was done at Plenary,
Senator Abba Morro replaces Senator Simon Mwadkwon.
While Senator Osita Ngwu replaces the former minority whip Senator Darlington Nwokocha. Who were removed by the Appeal Courts.
The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio said that the nomination of new minority leaders was based on their endorsement by the minority senators.
He said 41 senators signed for Abba Morro’s candidacy, while 31 senators signed for the candidacy of Senator Osita Ngwu.
The appointment of Senator Osita Ngwu as Minority whip causes little uproar in the chamber.
Senator Okey Ezeah representing Enugu West objected with the nomination of Senator Osita Ngwu as Minority Chief Whip.
He said it was unfair , unequitable, for the seven Labour Party Senators.
According to him the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members were allocated all the minority positions.
Similarly, Senator Tony Nwoye representing Anambra North also alleged that the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpiabio was involved in the selection of minority leaders for the senate.
Senator Nwoye said the minorities deserved the right to choose their leaders in the senate.

The Senate President Godswill Akpabio, however, said he announced the minority leadership positions based on the information and documents before him and urged aggrieved senators to follow the senate standing rule to come up with a counter motion.
