APC names Gobir as new senate leader, caucus chairman

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has named the lawmaker representing Sokoto East, Senator Abdullahi Gobir, as the new Senate Leader.

This is contained in a letter dated on Wednesday by the National Chairman of the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu and read at plenary by the President of the Senate, Senator, Ahmad Lawan.

Gobir replaced Senator Yahaya Abdullahi (Kebbi North) following his resignation as Senate Leader because he defected from the APC to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

Until his nomination, Senator Gobir chaired the Committee on National Security and Intelligence in the ninth assembly.

The nomination letter reads, “With reference to your letter No.: NASS9thS/SP/D/12/ dated 16th June, 2022, in which you informed the party of the vacancy of the office of the Senate Leader of our party.

“Accept herewith, the party’s nomination of Senator Ibrahim Gobir (Sokoto East Senatorial District) as replacement for the Senate Leader and Chairman of the APC Caucus.

“While thanking you for the usual cooperation, please accept the assurances of our best regards.”
