Representatives of the review report of an ad hoc committee established by both chambers to investigate the invasion of the Senate Chamber by thugs who took the club.
The club is the symbol of the authority of parliament. Misau noticed that the Omo-Agege suit was frivolous. The statement added: “The court can not prevent the legislator from fulfilling its constitutional obligations.” Thugs attacked the Senate Chamber on live television during the plenary session and inflicted injuries on April 18, 2018.
“The management set up an ad hoc committee to investigate what happened and to recommend measures to prevent it from happening again.” Several months after the committee’s report was presented, a senator precipitated to court when he learned that there was an impulse for the report to be examined before Vence the life of the present Senate.
“He wants to prevent consideration of the committee’s report.” In fact, his action has shown why the Senate should move forward, review the report and act on it, regardless of the chances.
“Omo-Agege has dared the Senate, he must now face the music and I blame the President of the Senate, Mr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, for delaying the consideration of the report.
“The eighth Senate is narrowing and the general opinion of the members is that before leaving, all pending reports should be examined and applied.
“If Omo-Agege does not have a hidden agenda, why is he trying to stop the review of the report?” After all, a fair hearing was given to him to present his own case to the committee.
“He is probably now in charge of the maneuver because he wants to become vice-president of the Senate and he knows that if we adopt the recommendation of the committee, the result will affect his ambition.” That’s why people should always consider the future implications of their actions, “he said.
However, he implored Senate leaders to act quickly to cancel the warrant issued to Omo-Agege by the Bwari court and ensure that nothing prevents the Senate from reaching the roots of this rogue invasion.
