The senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District, Ovie Omo-Agege, has said that he will resume his legislative activities today despite an attempt to seek a stay of execution of a court order that ruled in his favour.
Senate President Bukola Saraki had filed an appeal against the Federal High Court’s judgment that nullified Sen. Omo-Agege suspension.
On April 12, the Senate suspended the lawmaker for 90 legislative days for dragging the chamber to court over the amendment to the Electoral Act 2010, which sought to reshuffle the sequence of polls during a general election.
But the senator, who spoke at the APC national secretariat yesterday, said he was not expecting any attempt to stop him from gaining access to the Senate chambers today.
“I don’t 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. The court rendered that judgement because it felt that they were contemptuous.
“My matter was in court and notwithstanding, they proceeded to purportedly suspend me. It was on that basis that the court exercises its disciplinary power to reverse the suspension and not necessarily on the merit of my case,” he said.
