Both senators are from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which commands the majority among the six minority parties opposing the single majority of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Both senators Simon Mwadkwon, (Plateau North- PDP) and Darlington Nwokocha, (Abia Central-LP) respectively were sacked by the court in the last week.

Mwadkwon was the minority leader while Nwokocha was the minority whip before their removal.
