Omo-Agege said: “Like all phases of life, Eighth Senate has come and gone making all what happened then history.

“I begrudge nobody over any issue in the 8th Senate. Even the election that brought me in as Deputy President of the 9th Senate last week has closed the chapter of the 8th Senate as far as partisan issues were concerned.

“At inauguration on the day of the election, there were 62 APC Senators, 44 PDP and 1 YPP, meaning that the 68 votes I got, cut across party lines.

“With such bipartisan or multi partisan confidence reposed in one, the era of partisanship is gone. I will assist the  President of the Senate , Distinguished  Senator Ahmad Lawan in making the Senate and by extension, the National Assembly, one for the benefit of all Nigerians. “

The Ninth Senate, he said, will flow with the next level agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari .

He said: “We shall give the required collaboration to the executive arm of government and help in putting in place the needed enabling environment for execution of the next level agenda “.
