Just In: Senator Ahmad Babba Kaita sworn into the Senate
Senate President Bukola Saraki on Wednesday swore in Ahmed Babba Kaita and Lawal Yahaya Gumau as senators representing Katsina North and Bauchi South respectively.
Kaita and Gumau are taking over the seats of late Mustapha Bukar and Malam Ali Wakili who passed away months ago.
After swearing in the two new senators, Saraki congratulated them for joining the Red Chamber.
“Let me on behalf of all of us congratulate our two new colleagues, Babba Kaita and Yahaya Gumau, for being sworn in today. You are most welcome to the Senate,” Saraki said.
It could be recalled that, Hon. Ahmad Babba Kaita defeated his elder brother, Kabir Ahmad Babba Kaita in a keenly bye-election contest to clinch the Daura Senatorial zone seat.
