Dogara and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Senate were reportedly locked in a meeting at the new wing of the Senate complex on Tuesday evening to brainstorm on the possible solution to the lingering problem in the Senate.

Part of the unwritten agreement to allow peace to reign was to revert to the initial list of the party on the appointment of principal officers.

Saraki has already communicated to the Senate Leader, Ali Ndume; his Deputy, Bala Ibn Na’allah, and Deputy Majority Whip, Senator Francis Alimikhena, about the decision of the party on the need for them to vacate the offices.

Senator Ahmad Lawan has been told of the readiness of the Senate President to announce him as the new Senate Leader.
