…says there’ll be consequences if denied access

ABUJA—WEEKS after the fracas that led to the carting away of the Senate Mace, there could be another showdown at the Red Chamber today, as the senator  representing Delta Central, Ovie Omo-Agege, has vowed to assume full legislative duties today, following the court judgement which declared his suspension null and void.


He warned that there would be consequences should anyone try to stand in his way.

Omo-Agege spoke yesterday in Abuja when he, alongside Chief Great Ogboru and the Prophet Jones Erue-led State Working Committee of the party accompanied the Alhaji Sani Dododo-led Congresses Committee to submit the report of weekend’s local government congresses in Delta State.

He said:  “The enrolment of the court order is being served on the Senate as we speak and I believe that it has been served on the Senate. Thereafter, I reserve the right to resume when ever I deem fit.

“I do not expect any resistance because that will have its own consequences. This is a court order and you must understand the basis of the court judgement.

‘’My matter was in court and not withstanding, they proceeded to purportedly suspend me. It was on that basis that the court exercised its discretionary powers to reverse the suspension and not necessarily on the merit of my case.

“Now, I understand that they have gone to court to ask for a stay of that judgement. For those of you who are familiar with the law, that is an equitable relief. He who comes to equity must come with clean hands.”
