The emergence of Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC) has thrown spanner into work as All Progressives Party has lost control of majority seats in the Nigerian Senate.
By this factionalisation, the political calculus of the Red Chambers in the passage of bills and resolutions now is no longer the same as Senators in different political divides must be adequately lobbied and their interests aggregated.
The standings Of Political Parties In The Senate:
Peoples Democratic Party- 39 Senators
Reformed All Progressives Congress- 26 Senators
All Progressives Congress- 24 Senators
All Progressives Grand Alliance -2 Senators
Reno Omokri, a social media commentator alerted “I hope President Buhari knows that with the fractionalisation of the APC is no longer the majority in the Senate.”
