Senator Ibrahim Danbaba (PDP Sokoto South) has emerged as the new Deputy Minority Whip of the Senate.
Danbaba replaced Senator Sahabi Ya’u (Zamfara North), who defected from the opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ya’u said his decision to resign his membership of the PDP was necessitated by the endemic crisis that engulfed the Zamfara State chapter of the PDP which led the national body to dissolve the State Executive of the party.
However, Danbaba’s nomination as the new Deputy Minority Whip was conveyed in a letter by the National Body of the Peoples’ Democratic Party and read by the Senate President during plenary on Thursday.
The letter which was signed by the National Secretary, Senator Ibrahim Umar Tsauri read in part: “As Mr. President is aware of the very unfortunate defection of the former Deputy Senate Minority Whip, Distinguished Senator Sahabi Ya’u Kaura from the Peoples’ Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress (APC), the leadership of PDP studied and reviewed the unfortunate development.
“After due and wide consultations, the leadership of the party resolved to nominate and forward to you, the name of Distinguished Senator Ibrahim Abdullahi Danbaba from Sokoto State to fill the vacancy in accordance with the provision of Section 47 subsection 6 of the PDP Constitution as amended in 2017.”
