Court Nullifies Omo-Agege's 90-Legislative-Day Suspension By Senate

In the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/314/2018, he prayed the court for an order restraining the upper legislative chamber from denying him access into the Senate chamber and or preventing him from carrying his legitimate duty as a senator in the National Assembly.

An Abuja division of the Federal High Court has ordered the immediate reinstatement of Delta lawmaker, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, nullifying the Senate's decision to suspend him for 90 legislative days.

.

"Access to court is a fundamental right in the constitution which can not be taken away by force or intimidation from any organ", said Dimgba Igwe, judge of the high court in the capital city Abuja. Ovie Omo Agege can punish erring members of the Senate.

In a reaction to the comments made by Omo-Agege, the lawmaker representing Kogi Central, Senator Dino Melaye, called for an investigation of the former's statement.

The court maintained that the legislature is entitled to take measures to discipline any of its members whose action is capable of bringing the institution to disrepute.

"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.

Israeli PM Netanyahu says Iranian strikes from Syria "crossed a red line"
Moscow hopes that Iran and Israel will exercise restraint after alleged mutual missile attacks, the Kremlin said Thursday. Syria's state-run television station reports that it has intercepted and destroyed 2 missiles launched by Israel.

Though the court refused prayers one to seven of the plaintiff, however, it relied on the 8th relief which had sought for "any other order as may be deemed by the court".

The committee went ahead to recommend a 181-day suspension which was later reduced to 90 by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

Dimgba addressed the Senate's decision as an affront on the judiciary. According to the judge, although the plaintiff, as a senator, is not prohibited from holding a contrary view from his colleagues, the right to freedom of expression is not absolute.

"The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions under my chairmanship has done its own bit as far as issues relating to the suspension of Senator Omo- Agege was concerned".

Omo-Agege was suspended on April 13 over his remarks that the planned amendment to the 2010 Electoral Act was targeted at President.
