Ali Ndume have been removed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus in the senate as the leader of the upper legislative chamber.
In a letter to Senate President Bukola Saraki, the caucus appointed Ahmed Lawan, a senator from Yobe north, as its new leader.
But speaking with journalists at the national assembly complex, Ndume said he was unaware of his removal.
According to a source who claimed that the senate president had no hand in Ndume’s removal, but that he would abide by the decision of the caucus.
Ndume has had several spats with his colleagues – especially when they take decisions that are not favourable to President Muhammadu Buhari.
