There are possibilities Nigerians see some of the elected senators cross to another political party, this has been the nature and behaviour of Nigerian politicians.

When is the inauguration of the 10th Senate?

The inauguration of the 10th Senate (National Assembly) will take place on Monday, June 5, 2023, a week after the swearing-in of the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu while the training of the member-elect of the National Assembly starts by Wednesday, June 7, 2023
