Omo-Agege, Ndume Summoned Over Mace Theft

Omo-Agege, Ndume Summoned Over Mace Theft

The lawmaker representing Delta Central Senatorial District, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, was at the Senate chamber this morning.

The Senate and its President had through their lawyer, Mr. Mahmoud Magaji (SAN), asked the court to suspend Omo-Agege's resumption, pending hearing and determination of an appeal they filed to challenge his recall.

The Senate said its decision was in deference to a court judgment which nullified Omo-Agege's suspension.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court in a pronouncement last week Thursday said the Senate's decision regarding the suspension, as well as the pattern adopted by the National Assembly, was constitutionally defective.

"On the sole reason that the application and the notice of appeal do not show that they are targeted at the judgment of this court of May 10, 2018 sought to be stayed, I believe that I am left with no choice than to exercise my discretion in refusing the application".

Mr Omo-Agege was expected to resume plenary and other legislative duties on Tuesday after a federal high court last week quashed his suspension from the Senate.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that a joint ad-hoc committee of the Nigerian Senate and House of Representatives investigating the recent invasion of the upper chamber by alleged hoodlums and stealing of the mace has summoned Ali Ndume and Ovie Omo-Agege.

Omo-Agege was suspended in April following his comments at a press conference that the proposed amendment of the 2010 Electoral Act to change the sequence of elections set by INEC was targeted at President Muhammadu Buhari.

The judge, therefore, nullified Omo-Agege's suspension "with immediate effect".

The court noted that it was wrong for the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions to suspend Omo-Agege for going to court after he had apologised over his comments against the Senate.

Although the court refused to grant any of the seven prayers sought by the senator, ‎it held that the suspension could not hold on grounds of the "violence" it did to the Constitution.

He also ruled that the principle of natural justice was breached by the Senate's Ethics and Privileges Committee by allowing Senator Dino Melaye, who was the complainant, to participate in the committee's sitting that considered the issue and also allowed him to sign the committee's report.
