“We pray that this addition will bring more productivity and stability in the ninth Senate.

“We hope that it will also bring unity and more focus for us to do only those things that will bring development, peace and progress to Nigeria.”

With the return of Senator Olujimi, PDP now has 45 Senators in the Senate while the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Young Progressives Party (YPP) have 63 and one Senators respectively.

Other female members of the ninth Senate include Senators Oluremi Tinubu (Lagos Central), Rose Oko (Cross River North), Betty Apiafi (Rivers West), Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed (Adamawa Central), Uche Ekwunife (Anambra Central), Akon Eyakenyi (Akwa Ibom South) and Stella Oduah (Anambra North).
