How many senatorial districts are in Nigeria?
It is worthwhile that you know your senatorial district, the senators, your right and their duties to you.
The Nigerian senate consists of 109 senators: the 36 states are each divided into 3 senatorial districts, each electing one senator; that is 36 x 3 = 108. The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) however, elects only one senator, making it 108 + 1 = 109.
The President of the Senate is the presiding officer of the Senate, whose chief function is to guide and regulate the proceedings in the Senate. The Senate President is third in the Nigerian presidential line of succession. He is assisted by the Deputy President of the Senate. The Senate President and his Deputy are also assisted by principal officers including the Majority Leader, Deputy Majority Leader, Minority Leader, Deputy Minority Leader, Chief Whip, Deputy Chief Whip, Minority Whip, and Deputy Minority Whip. In addition, there are 54 Standing Committees in the Senate chaired by Committee Chairmen.
The lower house is the House of Representatives.
