Chief Adolphus Wabara, former Senate President, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the people of Delta State to immediately commence the recall process of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, representing Delta Central district.
Newsmen recalls that Omo-Agege was suspended on April 12by the Senate for 90 legislative days over remarks he made against new sequence of elections adopted by the Senate in the now vetoed 2018 Electoral Bill.
Wabara also called on the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) to immediately derobe the embattled Senator for his role in the saga.
Recall that thugs suspected to be loyal to the suspended Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial district, Ovie Omo-Agege, invaded the red chambers and forcefully took away the parliament’s symbol of authority.
Speaking in his capacity as chairman of the occasion, Wabara who commented on the Senate invasion saga said, “That was a rape on democracy. I was there at the helm of affairs for almost two years and I am speaking on good authority that it was an invasion on the National Assembly.
“Anything can happen to me stepping out of here. The leadership of the Senate would have been affected that day because a new Senate President would have been installed that day.
“I salute the resilience of the leadership of the Senate. This senator should be recalled immediately.
“INEC and his people should immediately commence the process of his recall.
“I urge the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) to start the process of disrobing him.”
Wabara also called for the strengthening of the institution of NASS even as he sought for the establishment of NASS police.
He said, “The National Assembly institution should be strengthened. If state governors are thinking about state police, the National Assembly should start thinking about NASS police’’.
In a veiled reference to the statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari against Nigerian youths, Wabara urged Nigerians to be resolute in their commitment to the wellbeing of the nation and resist any attempt by anybody to demonize and denigrate them.
Recall that President Buhari, while delivering a keynote address at the Commonwealth Business Forum in London, was quoted to have said that most Nigerian youths want everything free without doing anything.
He said, ‘’Nigerians are known for their hard work, resilience, commitment and love for one another. Any attempt to describe us otherwise, is a false assessment.”
