Written by on February 8, 2022

The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday received a letter from the National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP Iyorcha Ayu, nominating Senator Shuaibu Isa Lau (Taraba North) as the new Deputy Minority Leader of the Senate.

Ayu said Lau’s nomination was a sequel to Senator Emmanuel Bwacha’s defection from the PDP  to the All Progressives Congress (APC) last week.

The letter was read on the floor of the red chamber by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.

Meanwhile, the former Deputy Minority leader of the Senate Emmanuel Bwacha officially defected from the People’s Democratic Party to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

His decision to leave the opposition party came as the lawmaker raised a point of order on his move to dump the party.

Bwacha’s announcement was however met with opposition as the lawmaker representing Rivers East George Sekibo questioned the reasons given by Bwacha.

Sekibo was however ruled out of order by the Senate President

Bwacha’s defection brings the number of APC Senators to 70, PDP 38 Senators and Young Progressives Party (YPP) 1.
