We Will Allow Omo-Agege Resume In His Office – Senate

The Nigerian Senate said Monday night that it will not from attending plenary on Tuesday, in compliance with a Federal High Court order.

Following the judgement, an aide to Senate President Bukola Saraki, said the Senate has approached the court to appeal the ruling and institute a stay of execution.

Disobeying court orders is resistance to the rule of law.We desecrate democracy each time we defy the courts.

Same day he was suspended, Omo-Agege had reportedly told Punch that he would continue to work as a senator.

The embattled senator was suspended by the Senate in April.

Both Ndume and Omo-Agege as stated in separate letters of invitations sent to them for appearance today, are expected to answer questions on allegations of aiding the invaders who forced their way into the chamber and seized the Senate mace.

"As an institution that obeys the law and court orders, the Senate has decided that it will comply with the judgement of the Federal High Court and do nothing to stop Senator Ovie Omo-Agege from resuming in his office and at plenary from tomorrow May 15, 2018, pending the determination of the application for stay of execution".

Omo-Agege could not be reached, as he did not pick several calls made to his telephone line.

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.

The judge also added that the Senate's decision to punish Omo-Agege for filing a suit against the Senate and for punishing him while his suit was pending constituted an affront on the judiciary.

Justice Dimgba, therefore, ordered the immediate reinstatement of Senator Omo Agege his salaries and other entitlements should be paid.

"As regards to Omo-Agege, based on the testimony of the DPO, the SSS and the sergeant at arms, you are alleged to have entered the National Assembly accompanied by seven persons who allegedly took the mace of the Senate during plenary session on April 18, at about 11:30 a.m".

"Access to court is a fundamental right in the Constitution, which can not be taken away by force or intimidation from any organ", the judge ruled. Following the annulment, Omo-Agege boasted that he will resume and also insisted that the leadership of the Senate could not stop him.

Omo-Agege, who represents Delta Central Senatorial District, filed the suit to challenge his suspension from the senate.
