Just in: Senate Suspends Pro-Buhari colleague, Omo-Agege

The Senate has today suspended  Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for 90 legislative days.
The suspension followed the outcome of the Senate committee that was set up to probe Omo-Agege.
The legislative chamber equally asked the Delta State senator to withdraw his case against the Senate from court.
In addition, the report of the committee, which was adopted at the plenary, asked for the dissolution of the pro-President Muhammadu Buhari group in the Senate.
Omo-Agege, we gathered is the leader of the pro-Buhari group in the Senate.He was at the forefront of opposing the intended change in the INEC Time-table which did not go down well with his colleagues.
The immediate cause being fought for now in the Senate is the failure of the President to append his signature to the amended Electoral Act Bill.

Senators loyal to the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, are bent on vetoing the President on the bill.
After his suspension, Omo-Agege left the chamber with another pro-Buhari Senator, Abdullahi Adamu.
They went to the office of Adamu, a former Governor of Nasarawa State, while plenary was still on, probably plotting their next course of action.
