The All Progressives Caucus in the Senate has sacked the Majority Leader, Senator Ali Ndume, as its leader.
The caucus, in a letter to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, which was read on the floor of the chamber during the plenary on Tuesday, announced Senator Ahmed Lawan as its new leader.
It is still uncertain if Ndume will maintain his position as Senate Leader by implication.
Saraki said, “The APC caucus has written to me announcing the change of leadership of the caucus. They have named Ahmed Lawan as the leader”.
It was not clear whether Lawan is replacing Senator Ali Ndume (APC, Borno) who has been occupying the position of the Senate Majority Leader.
