The President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has inaugurated two newly-elected senators from Katsina and Bauchi State.

The Senate sworn in Ahmad Babba Kaita and Lawan Yahaya Gumau as members representing Katsina-North and Bauchi-South Senatorial Districts, respectively.

The Clerk to the Senate, Nelson Ayewo, supervised the oath-taking ceremony for the new senators, which lasted about 10 minutes at the opening of the session on Wednesday.

Kaita and Gumau had won the by-elections conducted in August by the Independent National Electoral Commission following the deaths of the former representatives of the districts.

Senators Mustapha Bukar (Katsina-North) and Ali Wakili (Bauchi-South) had died at different times earlier in the year.
