The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus in the Senate has nominated Senator Biodun Olujimi representing Ekiti South Senatorial Constituency as the new Senate Minority Leader after the resignation of Godswill Akpabio following his defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Olujimi who until now, was the Senate’s Deputy Minority Whip, was also a former deputy governor of Ekiti State and will take over the position vacated by Akpabio.
Vanguard reports that Olujimi’s name would be made known when the Senate reconvenes in September from its annual recess.
According to a Senate source, the PDP caucus took the decision to have Olujimi, a former member of the House of Representatives, in order to have a vibrant member from the South-West since Governor Ayodele Fayose, who has been very active, will soon round off his second term in office as governor.
It was also gathered that Deputy Senate Minority Leader, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha (PDP, Taraba South) and Senate Minority Whip, Senator Philip Aduda (PDP, FCT) would retain their positions because they are both from the north.
According to the source, Olujimi was also chosen because the party wants to recognise the contributions of women and she is one of the most active senators, it became imperative for her to take the position.
