Senator Ovie Omo-Agege Suspended For 90 Legislative Days
The Senate has suspended Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege (APC Delta State) for 90 legislative days, following the adoption of a report of its committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions.
The committee had earlier recommended that the embattled senator be suspended for one year, but was reduced following pleas on his behalf by other senators, and the intervention of Senate President Bukola Saraki.
Naija News recalls Omo-Agege was one of the lawmakers that opposed the re-ordering of election sequence, alleging that the Senate amended the Electoral Act frustrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid.
