Opposition Senator Vow To Resist Wike, Akpabio’s Choice For Minority Leader

Minister for FCT Nyesom Wike

Opposition senators have vowed to resist any attempt to foist compromised leadership on the minority caucus.

The four principal positions reserved for the opposition parties in the Senate are minority leader, deputy minority leader, minority whip and deputy whip.

In a move to get his political associates into minority leadership positions in the Red Chamber, the immediate past governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, met Senate President Godswill Akpabio on Thursday.

The meeting, which held at the National Assembly, lasted for several hours. Wike left the parliament around 6.30pm without talking to newsmen.

The former Rivers State governor is said to have successfully pushed his associate, Kingsley Chinda, as minority leader in the House of Representatives.

But opposition senators vowed to resist any attempt to foist “compromised leadership” on them by forces within and outside the National Assembly.
