The Senator representing Benue South Senatorial District, Abba Moro, on Tuesday, emerged as Senate Minority leader.
Moro, a two-term Senator on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was nominated by the opposition party in the red Chamber and was subsequently affirmed.
He takes over from Senator Simon Davou Mwadkwon from Plateau North Senatorial District who was removed by the Appeal Court.
Earlier, the Senate had zoned the Minority leader to the North Central. Senator Mwadkwon, though a first-timer to the Senate, was nominated by the minority caucus.
Recall the newly elected Minority leader was a former Minister of Interior during ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
