Politicians in Nigeria over the years have seen the Senate as a retirement house, with former governor of states in the country, seeing the National Assembly as their next target after four or eight years of leadership in their respective states.
If you question former governors in Nigeria or the sitting governors what their next political ambition is, a high percent will share with you about their Senate ambition.
Does this now mean that the Senate hardly has fresh minds of politicians but the recycled leaders from our different states, or are we going to believe that their leadership experience is brought in play in the upper chamber.
This question remains unanswered to why our former governors perfer to end their political career in the senate.
Here is the list of former governors who ended up in the Senate.
