9th Assembly: Former Deputy Senate President Not Happy With Successor Who Stole Mace

Ike Ekweremadu, former deputy president of senate has said that he is not happy with the emergence of Ovie Omo-Agege as his successor.


Mr Ekweremadu polled 37 votes while Mr Omo-Agege has 68 votes to emerge.

Expressing his displeasure, Mr Ekweremadu said it is a national disgrace having Mr Omo-Agege, who “led” thugs to steal the mace last year as second in command in the affairs of the state.

“I believe there must be a referendum,” Ekweremadu said.

Hynaija recalled how Mr Omo-Agege led thugs to invade the Senate chamber in April 2018 and forcefully removed the mace.

A National Assembly joint ad hoc committee in July 2018, recommended the suspension to Mr Omo-Agege for 180 legislative days.
