President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday night, received the newly elected leaders of the Nigerian Senate at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Shortly after his election as the Senate President of the ninth Senate, Ahmed Lawan (Yobe North) and his Deputy, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege (Delta Central) led other Senate leaders to visit the President.
Buhari, who was obviously elated that the party’s choice for the Senate leadership positions had clinced the various seats, shook hands with all the leaders while having a chat with them.
