Saraki Redeploys 4 Senate Committee Chairmen
Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, on Wednesday, effected changes in the leadership of four of Senate Standing Committees.
Making the announcement at the close of plenary, Saraki moved Senator Abu Ibrahim (APC Katsina State) from the Committee on Police Affairs to Committee on Labour and replaced him with Senator Tijjani Kaura (APC, Zamfara).
Ibrahim is seen as a staunch loyalist of President Muhammadu Buhari and confidant of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, who has been having running battles with the Senate recently. The President of the Senate also announced that the immediate past Senate Majority Leader, Senator Ali Ndume (APC, Borno) now heads the Committee on Establishment while the newly sworn-in APC senator from Bauchi State, Lawal-Yahaya Gumau, heads the Committee on Federal Character.
