Ekweremadu, who belongs to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and represents Enugu West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, said it is “embarrassing” for the Senate to have elected Omo-Agege, who “led” thugs to steal the mace.
He said he moved to contest for the seat again was not to win or lose, but to make a statement.
Ekweremadu polled 37 votes to Omo-Agege’s 68 votes.
“I believe there must be a referendum,” Ekweremadu said.
Omo-Agege allegedly led thugs to invade the Senate chamber in April 2018 and forcefully removed the mace.
