The in house crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may have taken another turn as the party caucus in the Senate has removed the Senate Leader, Ali Ndume (Borno South).
In a letter which was transmitted to the Senate on Tuesday, the APC caucus forwarded the name of Senator Ahmed Lawal (Yobe North) as the new Senate Leader.
The APC caucus also said the decision was arrived at during the party’s caucus meeting of Monday 9th January, 2017.
“I was surprised at the announcement, but I cannot tell if I have been removed as Senate Leader. I urge all of you to be calm while waiting for further development,” he said.
