A member of the Senate, Senator Olusola Adeyeye, representing Osun Central constituency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress has been made the new Senate chief whip of the 8th Nigerian Senate.
Adeyeye was nominated for the position by the Senate South-west caucus.
This was made known when the Senate president, Senator Bukola Saraki read out a letter from the South West APC caucus at the plenary session on Wednesday, September 30.
The Senate president had skipped reading the ministerial list which was submitted to the hallowed chambers as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
However, when Senator Godswill Akpabio who represents Akwa Ibom Northwest senatorial district demanded to know the reason why the Senate president had skipped reading the ministerial list, Senator Bala N’Allah replied that they still had enough time during the day to announce the list.
The Senate had resumed from a six-week summer recess on Tuesday, September 29.
