BREAKING: Bukola Saraki’s Senate Finally Bows To Pressure, Takes Fresh Decision, As President Buhari Beefs Up Security

The leadership of the Senate, led by Senate President, Bukola Saraki, last night, resolved to allow Senator Ovie Omo-Agege resume sitting today (Tuesday), pending the determination of a motion for stay of execution of the judgement at the Court of Appeal.

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, had beefed up security at the National Assembly, ahead of the expected resumption of Omo-Agege on Tuesday.

It could be recalled, that on April 12, Omo-Agege was suspended for 90 legislative days, over his remarks that the election sequence bill was targeted at President Muhammdu Buhari, and a Court action he instituted against the Senate.

Last Thursday however, a Federal High Court nullified the suspension and ordered for his immediate recall, with full entitlements.

Spokesperson of the Senate, Sabi Aliyu Abdullahi, in a statement last night, said the Senate has decided to obey the court orders.

“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 (today), May 15, 2018, pending the determination of the application for stay of execution.

“The Senate has been advised that since the motion for stay of execution of the Thursday (May 10, 2018) judgement shall be heard and possibly determined on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, we shall, therefore, respect the subsisting High Court judgement, and await the Appellate Court’s decision on the pending motion”, he said.

Post-Nigeria recalls that Omo-Agege was the second Senator to be suspended in the eight Senate. The first was Senator Ali Ndume (Borno South).
