In April 2007, he ran for the Senate as a member of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) and was elected for the Bauchi Central constituency. He was appointed to committees on Integration and Cooperation, Finance (vice chairman), Ethics & Petition, Banking, Insurance & Other Financial Institutions.
In a February 2009 interview he expressed support for creation of new states in Nigeria and criticized the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). He was among a group of senators who reportedly traveled to Ghana in May 2009 to attend a meeting with some oil companies, which resulted in a senate investigation. He supported a bill proposed by President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua seeking to give more powers to the Nigeria Police during elections, which was rejected by the Senate.
In his first two years in the Senate, he failed to initiate any bills.
