Full story by Punch

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Wednesday administered
oath of office and allegiance on Ahmad Lawan and 27 other All Progressives
Congress senators who were absent at the formal inauguration of the Eighth
The  senators were
gathered at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, waiting for President
Muhammadu Buhari, who was billed to address them when the Clerk of the National
Assembly, Alhaji Salisu Maikasuwa, proclaimed the Eighth Senate and
subsequently conducted the election.

The election, which had 23 APC senators in attendance,
produced Saraki as president of the Senate, while Senator Ike Ekweremadu was
elected his deputy.
Saraki, after the election, administered oath of office and
allegiance on 75 other senators.
However, the others, mainly members of the Senate Unity
Forum, led by Senator Ahmad Lawan, 
mobilised themselves to the chamber as early as 8:30am on Wednesday,
waiting for the Senate president, to formally swear them in as senators.
The senators, after the votes and proceedings of the
previous legislative day were adopted, took turn to take their oaths by reading
it out aloud and append signatures.
By protocol,  each of
the newly sworn-in senators were expected, 
after taking their oaths,  to
present a copy of their certificate to the Senate President and in turn, shake
hands with him.
The protocol was duly followed by others except Senator
Oluremi Tinubu (Lagos Central ), who refused to shake hands with Saraki, but
merely showed him her certificate and walked out on the Senate President.
