Senate suspends APC lawmaker for opposing election reordering bill

The senate has suspended Ovie Omo-Agege, an All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker from Delta state, for 90 legislative days.

The upper legislative chamber took the decision after it considered a report by its ethics committee.

The committee had recommended that senator be suspended for 181 days but the senate reduced it after pleas from lawmakers.

Omo-Agege was one of the senators who kicked against the election reordering bill.

Although he apologised for his stand, he still went to the court to get a restraining order against any move by the senate to suspend him.

His action was said to have angered some of his colleagues who pushed for his suspension.(thecable)
