10th Senate: Simon Mwadkon Emerges As The Senate Minority Leader As Tambuwal Loses Out

Former speaker of federal House of Representatives and immediate past governor of Sokoto state senator Aminu Tambuwal loses out as Mwadkwon, Plateau north senator, becomes minority leader.

Simon Mwadkwon, senator representing Plateau north, has beaten Aminu Tambuwal, senator representing Sokoto south, to become minority leader of the upper legislative chamber.

The minority leadership of the upper legislative chamber was announced by Senate President Godswill Akpabio on Tuesday.

“The minority caucus of the senate is made up of about seven political parties and have come up with their leadership so I will proceed to announce [the names],” Akpabio said.

“Senator Simon Mwadkwon, minority leader, Oyewumi Olalere, deputy minority leader, senator Darlington Nwokocha, minority whip, and senator Rufai Anga, deputy minority whip.”

Tambuwal, immediate-past governor of Sokoto and a former number four citizen, was interested in the position to lead the minority caucus of the senate.

However, when the principal officers of the minority leadership was announced, his name was conspicuously missing.

TheCable had reported how the former governor’s bid to be minority leader was met with stiff resistance by members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Many PDP members are still unhappy with the role Tambuwal played in ensuring former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar became the standard bearer of the party.
