The All Progressives Congress (APC) 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.
This followed his uncomplimentary comments against the resolution of the Senate to turn down the Presidency’s request to confirm Ibrahim Magu as the substantive Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC).
It is still uncertain if Ndume will maintain his position as Senate Leader by implication.
