- 76 senators of the 109-member Red Chamber will not be returning to the 8th assembly
- Though the Senate President (David Mark) and his vice (Ike Ekweredu) both scaled through the party primaries and general elections for 5th and 4th terms respectively, they will not be retaining their positions as their political party, PDP, won lesser seats than the APC. Hence, the new Senate President and other new principal officers will be members of the APC.
- The election results also reveal that the next Senate will be male-dominated, as only eight of the 109 elected will be females.
- Three of the eight women-senators are of the APC – Oluremi Tinubu (Lagos Central), Alhaja Monsurat Sunmonu (Oyo Central) and Binta Masi Garba (Adamawa North). The other five women are from the PDP – Uche Ekwunife (Anambra), Stella Oduah (Anambra), Abiodun Olujimi (Ekiti South), Fatima Raji-Rasaki (Ekiti Central) and Rose Okoh (Cross River North)
