Senator Ovie Oma-Agege, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Delta, has been suspended for 90 legislative days over his remark that the reordered election sequence was targeted at President Muhammdu Buhari.
Oma-Agege had shortly after the passage of the amendment to the 2010 Electoral Act, told newsmen that the change in the sequence was targeted at Buhari.
Recall that Omo-Agege, with nine other senators namely: Abdullahi Adamu, Malam Ali Wakili, Abu Ibrahim, Abdullahi Gumel, Binta Masi, Yahaya Abdullahi, Andrew Uchendu, Umaru Kurfi and Benjamin Uwajumogu had addressed the press where they expressed reservation over the change of elections sequence.
Omo-Agege had during the Press briefing said, “You don’t make a law to target one person. The perception is that the law is targeted at the President. I will continue to protest it. I can tell you it will not become a law”.
