Before the meeting, the Delta-born Senator had told newsmen;
“We all know what transpired in the past but what happened today has turned the page on 8th Senate and we have moved on to the 9th Senate. I look forward to working with my colleagues irrespective of political platforms. We will work together as brothers and sisters to move the senate forward. I attribute my victory to God and God only, there is no explanation for it”
