We pray that this addition will bring additional productivity and stability to the Senate.
“I will call for unity, of course we should remain focused and do only those things that will make our country great.”The other women senators include Stella Odua (PDP, Anambra North), Rose Oko (PDP, Cross River North), Oluremi Tinubu (APC, Lagos Central) and Aishatu Dahiru (APC, Adamawa Central). Others are Uche Ekwunife (PDP, Anambra Central), Betty Apiaffi (PDP, Rivers Central) and Akon Eyakemi (PDP, Akwa Ibom South).
