Group Rejects Tambuwal As Senate Minority Leader

Some senators of the People's Democracy Party (PDP) have rejected the choice of Aminu Tambuwal as senate minority leader.

The group said it is opposed to any attempt by the party to present Tambuwal as the Senate Minority Leader.

The Chairman of CPDPL, Daboikiabo Warmate, alleged in a statement on Wednesday that the group was not in support of Tambuwal, based on his actions as the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Warmate said that instead of Tambuwal, the position should rather be zoned to a state in the North-Central, precisely Plateau State.

“That his ambition is dead in its imagination, how much more arrival; nevertheless, the past has caught up with him,” he said.

Warmate stated that Tambuwal had, during his leadership as Speaker of the 8th House of Representatives given to him by the PDP, defected to the All Progressives Congress.

“It is with great disappointment and shock to have read in the papers that Tambuwal, the former Governor of Sokoto State and PDP Governors Forum Chairman, wants to be the minority leader of the 10th Senate.

“Somebody who in 2014 took the House of Representatives Speakership we gave to him and defected to another party. This same person eventually came back to the party.

“Now, he wants to be the minority leader of the 10th Senate; we will not give support to you."
