Thugs Invasion: Sagay Blames Saraki For Missing Mace by Ebullience(m): 10:36am On Apr 19, 2018
The Chairman of Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) has blamed Senate President Bukola Saraki for the invasion of the senate by suspected thugs on Wednesday.

Sagay explained that Saraki and his minions in the senate had been provoking people to take the law into their own hands.


The Senior Advocate said this while speaking to Punch.

He said, “This Senate led by Bukola Saraki has been provoking Nigerians for a long time. What happened today (Wednesday) was illegal; there is no doubt about that. But the provocation that this particular Senate has been inflicting on Nigerians has reached a boiling point.

“You cannot be enjoying the huge and enormous resources of the people, living in luxury and at the same time refusing to do your job, making trouble with the executive at the slightest opportunity, bringing the government to a standstill and then turning members of the Senate into puns who can be pushed here and there.

“I think Saraki has gone too far. While what happened today is illegal, I have no doubt in my mind that he and the group that surround him provoked it. Ultimately, I hold Saraki responsible for what happened today.”

DAILY POST reports that thugs suspected to be loyal to the suspended Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial district, Ovie Omo-Agege had invaded the red chambers and forcefully took away the mace.

They broke into the chambers when plenary was going on, creating serious confusion and tension.

Few hours later, Sen. Omo-Agege was arrested in connection to the incident but was later released, after which he denied claims that he staged the incident.

This one is already suffering from Bubulisis.

Between Saraki and Buhari, who has far more provoked Nigerians?

Like for Saraki and Share for Bubu.

I still don't understand why people brazenly failed to admit that the illegal action of suspending a Senator representing his constituent for 6 months itself is provocative. The Senate President should apologize for causing the country this embarrassment and promise to henceforth act legally and morally on this case of suspension.He wants his own constituents represented but don't see anything wrong in denying other people's constituents of representation.

Hmmm Omo-Agege!Trying times we have. Before the Senate/Saraki act further on this issue, he(Saraki) should consult Ibori, Uduaghan, Ighoyota, and PDP, Delta state on the enigma called Omo-Agege. Nationally, he is unknown because he is a first time senator. He is well bred in all manners of approach to Nigerian politics. If his interests sit at the bottom of the Lion's belly, he will brace the odd.

The House of Assembly is an independent arm of the government just like the Judiciary and the Executive. They have internal mechanisms in resolving their issues, the suspended senator accused the red chamber wrongly and was penalized just like the house of Representatives suspended the member from Kano who raised the alarm on budget padding,the NJC retiring some of the judges accused of corruption.

The Executive in collaboration with some of this SANs (STUPID ADVOCATES OF NIGERIA) wants to destroy Democracy by intimating the other arms of govt that should be independent.

I don't think so sir. No Senator has the right to suspend another Senator. The only authority to suspend a Senator is the constituents.This suspension is an aberration in democracy and it is the hangover of military mentality. It's illegal and immoral. Why on earth should Ilorin be represented and Delta central denied of representation?Is it the constituent that erred even if an error is committed?This nonsense has to stop and the courts should sanction any defaulting legislator and should be prosecuted after the expiration of his/her tenure. Their suspension is useless now because they can't physically bundle the Senator out of the Parliament.
Buhari doesn't have their time and he is not ready to share money so it's in their court now. The case of Jibrin is clear,he was part of those who padded the budget illegally,he doesn't have clean hands so he lost the moral authority.

I totally agree. Even though Buhari appointed "Mama Taraba", he hasn't sacked her till date for saying she will not support his re-election bid, but rather Atiku's. That's not foolishness; that action has some elements of intelligence and tolerance. How then does Saraki think he can just be suspending ELECTED (not appointed) senators anyhow?

No one will see here Will see point in what he said, he condemned the action, but the truth be told, the constitution is clear on suspension of any member, anything outside of this is witch hunt, illegality and the drama at the senate yesterday is what it breeds, he was elected by his constituency and not by national assembly, every lawmaker has equal right, saraki's handedness is getting out of hand. if not nib in the bud, many more will still happen.

I didn't blame Buhari I blame Nigeria youth who's many have spent millions of Naira to fund their Education doing all manner of jobs season in and out without common basic necessity from so call government who feed from us fund their children Education abroad, travel abroad from any slight headeache, embezzled our money without accountability with his unemployed son own a N56m bike, unemployed wife have a single handbag worth N40m to call us lazy people. In fact what Buhari need is mass beaten from youth on his arrival in this Country not Election he deserves to be overthrow by youth because every sane man know Buhari will rigg 2019 election.

Finally, because of the ethnic cleansing being carried out by the so-called fulani herdsmen, are we now justified to pick up arms go to their respective states and cause chaos because they provoked us?

Yet Jibrin was suspended by the House of Representatives for 6mths.Sagay watched as Buhari never met with Jibrin for one day,eventhough the suspension was for his exposing the corruption in the HOR headed by Dogara.Instead Buhari was joyfully having series of private meetings with Dogara.
All throughout his 6mths suspension why did the likes of disgraceful Sagay not encourage Jibrin to storm the HOR or advice Buhari to show support for him or call Dogara to order?
That Sagay can justify this thuggery by Omo-Agege and support Buhari's second term bid,despite his incompetence and questionable certificate,shows how deep the mess we have dug ourselves into.
