The member representing Delta Central senatorial district at the National Assembly, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has described the purported resolution by the House of Representatives to suspend him over his alleged involvement in the incident that occurred in the Senate Chamber which led to the removal of the Senate’s mace by some persons on April 18, 2018, as an act of lawlessness.
Omo-Agege also advised House of Representatives on his alleged suspension to either eat it or better still, shove it.
Omo-Agege said, “It has been brought to my notice that on July 10, 2018, House of Representatives purportedly resolved to suspend me from the Senate for 180 legislative days. The said resolution was made pursuant to a certain Ad-hoc Committee investigative report presented by Betty Apiafa (PDP or CUPP) over my alleged involvement in an incident that occurred in the Senate Chamber which led to the removal of the Senate’s mace by some persons on April 18, 2018.
“Without much ado, I state without equivocation that the purported House resolution is just an act of utter lawlessness by one ordinary first among equals in the Senate who prides himself as a most intolerant dictator.
“The Urhobo people that I represent with honour in the Senate do not respect oppressors or dictators. To this extent, I will never bow down to a lawless emperor. Instead, I visit all the contempt, scorn, and disdain in this world upon the supposed resolution, especially its originator, knowing that the very good men and women of that most honourable House did not wilfully make such a manifestly inoperable and laughable resolution.”
