We won’t stop Omo Agege from resuming says senate

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

While stating that the access to be given to Omo-Agege was in compliance with the court order, it noted that the judgment had been appealed while a motion for stay of execution of the order had been filed.

"Having regard to the settled position of the law as expoused by our courts in not less than five cases wherein the suspension of legislators by legislative houses was annulled and set aside the Senate should withdraw the appeal filed against the judgment of the Federal High Court in the case of Senator Omo-Agege".

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

The Senate has said it will allow Delta Central senator, Ovie Omo-Agege, who was previously suspended for 90 days to resume legislative duties following the nullification of his suspension by an Abuja court.

A week after, Dino Melaye (Kogi-APC) drew the attention of the Senate specifically to the comments made by Mr Omo-Agege.

It will be recalled that Senate President Bukola had on April 25, announced the setting up of Investigative panel which is chaired by the deputy leader of the senate, Senator Bala Ibn Na'Allah (APC Kebbi North), to carry out a holistic probe into the invasion. The Senate said it suspended Mr Omo-Agege for dragging the matter to court.

However, as with the non-dismissal of Bakayoko today, we can all look forward to more mayhem from this fallen superpower. The fans have ambitions, we have ambitions and we need to know if everyone has the same feeling.

However, Omo-Agege's inability to resume as promised may not be unconnected with the pending determination of the application by the upper chamber for stay of execution of the judgement delivered in favour of the lawmaker.

"The Senate leadership has been briefed by our lawyers on last Thursday's judgement of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on whether the Senate has the legal authority to suspend a member for certain misconduct or not".

Mr Omo-Agege was also not in his office.

"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.

Dimgba also ordered the Senate to pay Omo-Agege any outstanding salaries or allowances which were due to him during the period of the suspension. "While this suit was pending, and to the knowledge of the Senate and the Senate President, they went ahead and imposed a sanction on him".

He maintained that suspending the senator for more than 14 days was denying his constituents the required representation.

Omo-Agege however said on Saturday that the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami, was joined in the suit challenging his suspension.
