Prior to their entrance to the chambers, there was however a mild drama as the PDP Senators who rose from a meeting this morning decided to enter the chambers as a group.

The PDP Senators who waited at the entrance did not enter the chambers until Senate President Bukola Saraki entered at exactly 10.45am with some of the principal officers.

The PDP senators waited outside until the first item in the Order Paper which is prayer was taken, even when Senator Kabir Marafa, APC, Zamfara Central came to plead with them to enter as he was prepared to lead them, the PDP Senators shouted saying, Marafa, go inside, go to your seat and soon after the prayer was taken, the PDP Senators led by the Minority leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio entered.
