Embattled Nigerian Senator Ovie Omo – Agege takes to social media to share his side of the story.



Suspended Delta Senator Ovie Omo-Agege took to Twitter to give a detailed account of the politics that led to his suspension;

A lot has been said on social media about me being part of a committee that recommended 6 months suspension for Senator Ali Ndume, I have this to say; Being part of a committee does not necessarily mean one must approve whatever the report of the committee is for the purpose of setting the records straight, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege refused to sign the report that facilitated the suspension of Sen. Ali Ndume. Available facts shows that of the 13-member committee, only seven signed the report, with six of them being members of the PDP.

The only senator elected on the platform of the APC who signed the report was Tayo Alasoadura. Not even the Vice Chairman of the Committee, Senator Bala Na’Allah, signed the report. Ndume was elected on the platform of the APC.

Senators elected on the platform of the PDP who signed the report were Samuel Anyanwu (Chairman), Obinna Ogba (Ebonyi), Jeremiah Useni (Plateau), Peter Nwaoboshi (Delta), Matthew Urhoghide (Edo), Mao Ohuabunwa (Abia).

Apart from Senator Bala Na’allah, APC senators who did not sign the report were Omogunwa Yele, Muhammed Shittu, Ovie Omo-Agege and Binta Garba. Please let’s be well guided with actual facts when passing sensitive information on Social Media. Thanks.
