The lawmaker representing Delta   Central Senatorial District, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has said despite the appeal filed by the Senate and its President, Bukola Saraki, against the Federal High Court’s judgment nullifying his suspension, he will still resume legislative duties.

According to him, the Senate and Saraki have only applied for a stay of execution at the Court of Appeal which has not been granted.

Omo-Agege pointed out that the lower court made a declaratory judgment which had an immediate effect.

He also accused Saraki of seeking the relief for a stay of execution from a court of law which he had allegedly ignored and gone ahead to approve his suspension.

The Senate had on April 12, 2018, suspended Omo-Agege for 90 legislative days for dragging the chamber to court over the amendment to the Electoral Act 2010, which seeks to reshuffle the sequence of polls during a general election.

On the day of his suspension, Omo-Agege had exclusively told The PUNCH that he would continue to work as a senator.

The lawmaker had attended plenary on April 18, one week after his suspension, in a controversial circumstance.

However, a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday nullified the 90-day suspension imposed on him.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, in the judgment, said the order nullifying the suspension was “with immediate effect.”
