Buhari support group wants Senate to respect court ruling on Senator Omo-Agege

The Buhari Support Organization, BSO, has urged the senate to respect recent court ruling on suspended APC Senator Omo-Agege, saying it will promote democracy and rule of law for which the Senate has been known for.

The group which made the call at a press briefing addressed by its Katsina state Chairman, Dr Abba Y. Abdullahi, frowned at what it called ‘’the ill-treatment’’ meted out to the distinguished senator, and said such treatment constitutes an affront to the law and principles of human right and free speech.

He said; we wish to appeal to you to urgently implement the court ruling and reverse the suspension of Omo-Agege, stop any further victimization of the Senator and apologize to him and Nigerians for exposing him and his constituency to public ridicule’’

Recall that on Thursday Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court ruled that the Senate’s decision on Omo-Agege, regarding the suspension, as well as the pattern adopted by the National Assembly, was constitutionally defective.

Omo-Agege, representing Delta Central, had approached the court, after the Senate’s committee on ethics and privileges began investigating his comments condemning the Senate over the National Assembly’s decision to amend the electoral act.
