Senate invasion: Prosecute Senator Omo-Agege now, PDP NEC demands

The Peoples Democratic party (PDP), on Thursday, 19/4/2018 rose from its emergency National Executive Council (NEC) meeting with a call for the immediate prosecution of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, and all those involved in the invasion of the hallowed chambers of the Senate.
Condemning the assault on the National Assembly, in a communique, the PDP NEC declared that the invasion which culminated in the seizure of the mace and disruption of proceedings in the senate chamber, is a direct attack on the sovereignty of Nigeria and her integrity as a democratic nation.
Part of the communique reads: “The NEC calls for immediate prosecution of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege and all those involved in this treasonable act.
“It further demanded for a system-wide inquest, particularly on the compromised security at the National Assembly and held that the matter be expeditiously dealt with.
“he meeting notes the scheduled visit of President Muhammadu Buhari scheduled to the home of democracy, the United States of America, whereas back home, his administration is annihilating, harassing and strangulating opposition voices, even within his own party.
“In the same vein, the NEC also strongly condemns the branding of Nigerian youths as lazy, by President Muhammadu Buhari as a direct injury on the sensibility of our youths who are known worldwide to be hardworking.
“The PDP reaffirms its belief and confidence in Nigerian youths and boldly announces to the world that our youths are resourceful and agile.
“Our nation is blessed with hardworking young men and women and we enjoin them to team up with PDP Generation Next Movement in the all-important determination to vote out the APC, which has not only refused to show interest in their well-being and development but has also held them in the highest form of disdain.”
