The 8th Senate under the leadership of Dr. @bukolasaraki remains the best and Nigerians will miss him.
We can judge from the number of bills passed by each @NGRSenate
7TH SENATE: 128

The 8th @nassnigeria strengthened the principles of separation of powers, and checks and balances. This is something we will not forget. Kudos to the best @SPNigeria so far, Sen @bukolasaraki.#8thSenateValedictory

Bukola Saraki is the finest Senate President this country has ever had.Only those who understand how an ideal Democracy works will appreciate his time in the red chamber.
The next four years will make us even appreciate him more. Smart, proactive Democrat. #8thSenateValedictory

We pray it to be vibrant like the 8th Senate who did not dance to the whims and caprices of the executive or allowed it to be overruled by the dictates of the president.#8thSenateValedictory
