Some members of the Senate Unity Forum who are loyalists of Senator Ahmed Lawan, have confirmed that Saraki and some of his supporters have approached them for reconciliation.

The aggrieved senators are demanding the immediate resignation of the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and the investigation of the Clerk of the National Assembly, Salisu Maikasuwa, for his role in the June 9 Senate inauguration.
