Omo-Agege Attends Senate Plenary I The Precision


Sen. Ovie Omo Agege back in Senate

By Naomi Sharang
Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege on Wednesday appeared before the Senate in plenary.


Omo-Agege was seen signing the attendance register within the upper chamber.
The Senate on April 12, suspended Omo-Agege (APC-Delta) over a
“dissenting comment’’ on decision of the Upper Chamber on adoption of
conference report on Electoral Act (2010) Amendment Bill.
Omo-Agege, however went to court to challenge his suspension and the
court in its ruling, declared the action unconstitutional, saying that
the Senate could not suspend a member beyond 14 days.

The Senate appealed the ruling but said in a statement that while it
was waiting for a stay of execution, it would not stop the lawmaker from
resuming plenary.
NAN reports that Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, of Federal High Court on May
10, held that while the National Assembly had the power to discipline
its erring members, the premise on which Omo-Agege’s suspension was
anchored was illegal.
