Battle of Wits Begins Over Senate President Job

The 2019 national assembly election threw up some of the biggest political heavyweight losses that Nigeria has ever witnessed. It was a surprise - and for some a shock - to find out that incumbent senate president Bukola Saraki lost his seat. Now, the 9th National Assembly throws many new names into the pot. And with some of the newly elected senators facing corruption probes, and others already already being prosecuted, who will emerge as the new leader?
