The suspension of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has been annulled by the Federal High Court on 10th of May.
The judge also said that the 90 legislative day suspension was against Order 67, Rule 4 of the Senate Standing Rules which provided for a lawmaker to be suspended for only 14 legislative days.
Senator Omo-Agege was suspended for 90 days, because he challenged the senate for changing the election schedule; the new schedule puts Governorship/State Houses of Assembly elections to be the first, followed by the National Assembly election and Presidential election to be the last election on the schedule.
He actually disrupted one of the proceedings, by accompanying thugs to carry the maze, which was later found under a bridge in Abuja.
The latest news is that he is going to resume session this week in the senate.
Speaking in Abuja yesterday, the Chairman Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, stated that the senate and the official senate lawyers have been briefed about Thursday’s court hearing in Abuja, and they have agreed to allow him into the senate until the appeal to the court will be decided on.
This is getting interesting, lets wait and see how this will play out.
