By Johnbosco Agbakwuru & Joseph Erunke

ABUJA – The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Wednesday, administered the oath of office and allegiance on his closed rival in the contest for the Senate President for the 8th senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan and 27 other Senators that missed their oath taking on Tuesday.

But the oath-taking and allegiance witnessed a mild drama as Senator Oluremi Tinubu Representing Lagos Central on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, held back her hands when the Senate President in line with the tradition after administering the oath stretched out his hands to shake her.

However, other APC Senators who participated in the exercise including Senator Lawan who was adopted by the leadership of the APC for the Senate President position had the hand shake with Senator Saraki.

The Senate after the oath taking entered into closed door session.
