Senator Tony Nwoye, representing Anambra North, during plenary yelled and vented the misgivings of the Labour Party on Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, over the leadership positions in the Minority Caucus of the Senate.
CANDIDREPORTERS.COM gathered that Akpabio had announced Senator Abba Moro, representing Benue South, as Minority Leader, and Senator Osita Ngwu, senator representing Enugu West, as minority whip on Tuesday during plenary.
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.
However, trouble started when Akpabio announced their replacements on Tuesday.
Labour Party Senators had expected another member from the party to replace Nwokocha but that was not to be.
To their consternation, Ngwu was named instead.
Miffed by what they considered deliberate isolation , Nwoye rose to vent the party’s anger, yelling at Akpabio.
