The Senate on Thursday inaugurated Senators Magnus Abe (Rivers South East), George Thompson Sekibo (River East) and Osinakachukwu Ideozu as Senators of the Eight Senate.
Senate President, Bukola Saraki, inaugurated the senators following their victory in the December 10 Rivers State parliamentary elections.
After the inauguration, Senator Abe told journalists that without dutiful security agents, it would have been near impossible for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct the election.
He said some people with vested interest attempted to scuttle the election but for the determination of security agents to see the election through.
Abe, who was part of the 7th Senate, noted that “coming back to the Senate is a dream come true. I know that if election is conducted in the Rivers South East any time I will emerge victorious.”
Abe promised to continue promoting the interest of Nigeria above personal interest.
