Senate Set To Suspend Ovie Omo-Agege Over Buhari Comment by zakim(m): 10:48am On Feb 21, 2018
The senate, yesterday, resolved to probe Senator Ovie Omo-Agege (APC, Delta) over his statement that the reordering of elections sequence was targeted at President Muhammadu Buhari.

Oma-Agege had shortly after the passage of the amendment to the 2010 Electoral Act, told newsmen that the change in the sequence was targeted at Buhari.

Daily Trust recalls that Omo-Agege, with nine others: Senators Abdullahi Adamu, Malam Ali Wakili, Abu Ibrahim, Abdullahi Gumel, Binta Masi, Yahaya Abdullahi, Andrew Uchendu, Umaru Kurfi and Benjamin Uwajumogu had addressed the press where they expressed reservation over the change of elections sequence.

During the briefing, Omo-Agege said, “You don’t make a law to target one person. The perception is that the law is targeted at the president. I will continue to protest it. I can tell you it will not become a law,” he said.

During yesterday’s plenary, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on the FCT, Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi), raised a point of order demanding that Oma-Agege be probed.

Recall that it was Melaye that raised the point of order that led to the suspension of Senator Ali Ndume (APC, Borno) for six months in March last year. Ndume’s “offence” was his statement on Melaye and the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

Melaye said, “President Muhammadu Buhari is not only my party man; he is a president we all laboured to vote for. My colleague, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, addressed the media last week. He said the decision taken by this senate was targeted at President Buhari.

“I cannot be part of any group of persons to move against the president; the allegations are weighty. I followed President Buhari to 35 states of the federation during the campaigns.

“When I was following the president round the country, Omo-Agege was in the Labour Party (LP). To now allege and put the integrity of the senate under check that the amendment was tailored towards the president is unheard of; it is in bad taste,” he said.

“I want to ask that the statement made by Omo-Agege, among other statements, be investigated by the Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions. They need to find out if our actions were targeted at the president, he added.”

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the plenary, referred the matter to the ethics committee, saying they should bring their report within two weeks.

Well played.

All these is just for the APC government to get us mentally involved in their little wars while they continue to feed fat on the revenue acrued from sales of Oil which is in the soil that we all walk on, but then the monies derived from this oil is not even shared to us, neither do they even fuel the big generators called power plants with the oil and gas in the soil for us to even power our homes.

Who did this to us ? I mean we prefer to fight in Senate instead of thinking how we prefer to sell oil and gas, instead of connecting to the plants and giving us common light this Dino and Saraki and Buhari and their ignorant cohorts, and when I say ignorant, these guys are totally ignorant of the global power play, they are now finding ways to please the Nomadic President so he can let EFCC and ICPC off their backs ?

Is this one a country of humans or a zoo of cows ?

Though I admire the independent nature of the Saraki Senate, I do not think that you are right. They tend to gravitate towards self interest. They are not people oriented. The best Senate was Okadigbo leadership.

Send him to Agege in Lagos to represent them. He's obviously not in tune with the pulse of his constituents in Delta state.

It doesn't matter which sequence the election takes, Buhari and his APCheats must and will be swept off Aso Rock. That is the Nigeria's call which must be obeyed by ALL COMPATRIOTS (not zombies) in 2019. And the call we will obey.

On the other hand, how did this idiot manage to win Delta senatorial seat? This is why I tell my people on the eastern side of the Niger River that zombiism is not endemic to the west or north of Niger. There are incurable zombies in all zones.
