A chieftain of the APC in Delta State, Prince Christopher Agaga, has called on the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Alhaji Abubakar Malami, to speak on the violations of the country’s constitution that led to the suspension of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege from the Senate.
Agaga, in a statement made available to the press, condemned the Senate’s decision to suppress the right of Senator Omo-Agege to expression.
He said the decision also meant that the Urhobo ethnic group had been left without representation.
According to him, “For as long as the minister of justice does not rise to the occasion to proactively stop the constitution from being desecrated and shredded, so long shall we have this regime of impunity that has now become the forte of the leadership of the Senate and House of Representatives as a cog in the wheel to the growth of democratic culture, governance and development of the country.”
According to him, “There cannot be a more appropriate time than this for the minister to rise up to the challenge by initiating legal measures to arrest the ugly and disgusting situation with a view to reassuring the people of Delta Central Senatorial District.
“This is the time to go back to the regime of deploying legal measures to curb the excesses of people and organs/institutions of government,” he said.
