The 2019 presidential and national assembly elections held on February 23, 2019 with the ruling APC emerging the dominant party in the 9th Nigerian Senate.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) released the full list of the members of the ninth national assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which were presented Certificates of Return to all the successful candidates on Thursday 14th March 2019, inaugurated and sworn in on June 9, 2019.

The 2019 national assembly elections were held together with that of the presidential on 23rd February 2019 after the initial scheduled date of February 16, 2019 was moved forward by a week. The INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, cited “logistics and operations problems” as the cause of the postponement.

The Nigerian Senate comprised 109 members, three from each of the 36 states of the federation and one from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

As at the time of filing in this report, INEC had released the names of the winners of all the 109 seats of the Senate. While a newly registered party, the Young Progressives Party (YPP) picked one, the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) secured 45 while the ruling party, All Progressives Party (APC) got the lion share of 63 seats.

Senator Ahmad Lawan (Yobe North, APC) was elected the Senate President, while Senator Ovie Omo-Agege (Delta Central, APC) deputises for him.

In addition the table above shows that of the 109 elected members of the 9th senate, 102 male senators were returned, with only seven female senators scaling through the eye of the needle.

The Southsouth, Southeast and Southwest regions seem to be most gender friendly returning two female senators each, while the Northwest region took to the podium as the most gender unfriendly region returning only male senators.

So far there had been four departures from the 9th Senate, two cases each for death and election to higher offices. Senators Benjamin Uwajumogu (Imo North, APC) and Longjan Ignatius Datong (Plateau South, APC) departed to the Land of No Return, while Senators Diri Duoye (Bayelsa Central, PDP) and Degi Eremienyo Diobaraku Wangagra (Bayelsa East, PDP) were elected and sworn in as governor and deputy governor of Bayelsa state, respectively.

A cursory look at the returns of senators shows that PDP had its highest numbers of senators from the Southsouth (15). This was followed by the Southeast (11) and then the Northcentral and Southwest (5 each), with Northeast and Northwest getting returning 4 each.

The PDP were lucky in the Northwest when the Supreme Court gave them three seats from Zamfara state on a platter of gold when it upturned the elections of the APC on the grounds of non-conduction of primaries.

In the reverse case, the APC had more senators in the northwest (17), northeast came second (14), while the southwest and the northcentral region where the Saraki dynasty was booted out came third (13 each). The hitherto PDP swing states of southsouth gave the ruling party three senators, with ruthless machination of the ruling party also earning it three senators from the hitherto no-go-area of southeast region. 

The 2019 general elections also saw about 17 former governors elected to the red chambers making up more than 15 percent of the total numbers of senators. This further buttresses the opinion of those saying that the Nigerian Senate is the retirement home of ex-governors.

The outcome of the bye-elections that will fill up the vacancies occasioned by death and promotions will further show where the pendulum of influence in the 9th Nigerian Senate will swing to.
