Nigerians will also today elect the candidates to occupy the 109 seats in the Senate of the National Assembly of Nigeria. The 36 states of the federation are each divided in three senatorial districts, each electing one senator while the Federal Capital Territory elects only one senator.

Today, 950 senatorial candidates from the registered political parties will fight to occupy the 109 seats in the upper house of Senate.

Elections to the Lower House of House of Representatives representing the Federal Constituencies across the 36 states of Nigeria will also hold pari-pasu with the presidential and senatorial elections.

Three thousand, nine hundred and thirty-nine, (3, 939 ) contestants across the 26 registered political parties will today jostle to occupy the 360 Federal Constituency seats at the polls.


Elections to the National Assembly are as tough as the presidential election. But the senate recently expressed confidence on the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) readiness to conduct free, fair and credible elections. The Senate President, David Mark, disclosed this when the Chairman of INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega, briefed the House and demonstrated how the card reader would be used.

Mark also expressed satisfaction at the demonstration of the card reader and the level of preparedness of INEC, saying that the demonstration was beneficial.

“We have so much confidence that you will organise free, fair and credible elections; indeed all of us who are standing for election in the Senate will like to come back. “We will like to win our election but we want to win in free, fair and credible elections. I can say that nobody seated here wants to come back through the back door.

“It is for us to assist you to conduct free, fair and credible elections and whatever we can do between now and the date you have chosen for us to go for the elections, we will not hesitate to do. “I believe that you have benefited from this interaction; we have also benefited. “A number of issues have been raised and they are pointers to the way you will like to look at the administrative and technical issues that have also been raised.’’
