Senator Shehu Sani blasts Omo-Agege
Posted by Oche Agwuchi (Deputy Editor)
Senator Shehu Sani, representative of Kaduna Central at the National Assembly has lambasted his colleague who allegedly stormed the chamberwith thugs to protest his suspension.
The Kaduna senator described the act as “morally and ethically wrong”, saying “the Senate is not a place for that kind of thing”.
Sani described the action as “an assault on democracy and democratic institution” and equated it to “an attempt to take over an arm of the government. If this is not condemned, it could also happen to the Presidency if it happens to the Senate, because the Senate is an arm of the government. If an action is not taken on this issue, it is going to set a very bad precedence and democracy will seriously be at risk”.
Although Omo-Agege has come out to say he had no hands in the melee that led to the disappearance of the mace, he has refused to address the question: Why was he (on suspension) at the Senate chamber that Wednesday?
