Just in case you dino know (couldn’t resist), your fave senator—Dino Melaye— and others are back in the Senate. Here’s how the political parties shared the 109 seats:
All Progressives Congress (APC) – 63 seats
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) – 37 seats.
Young Progressive Party (YPP) – 1 seat
Yes, YPP we hear you, it’s lonely at the top 😢 but we’re stoked you made it to the top 🙌
Gentle Reminder: The Senate has a total of 109 seats with 3 Senators from each of the 36 states plus one from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Why does it matter?
Now might be a good time to know the senator representing you.
But before you dash off to go check for yours, know this. if you’re from Imo west senatorial district, we’d help you out for free. Yours might be Rochas Okorocha—the outgoing governor of Imo state —who is caught in a fix. Basically, INEC has withheld his certificate because the returning officer (the person responsible for overseeing elections in one or more constituencies) for Imo West senatorial district election, said he declared Governor Okorocha as the winner “under duress”.
