A socio-political group, Urhobo Solidarity Union, (USU) has called on the Nigerian Senate to immediately begin process for the expulsion and subsequent prosecution of suspended Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for leading hoodlums to the Senate chamber to steal the Mace.
The group in a statement by its National Coordinator, Comrade John Enitekiru, condemned in strong terms, Omo-Agege's involvement in the act, which according to him "has brought the institution of the Senate into great disrepute and has caused the nation great embarrassment among comity of states."
Enitekiru said "With his unstatemanly act, Senator Omo-Agege has shown that he is not fit to be among distinguish people making laws for the nation. He has also displayed that he's unfit to represent the good people of Delta Central Senatorial district at the Senate."
The group also described as worrisome, the act of the Senator and said if such act is let go unpunished, it could become a very bad model for the coming generation and also set a bad precedence at the Senate which is known to be a gathering of matured, refined and distinguish Nigerians.
"It is on this note that we call on the leadership of the Nigerian Senate to begin the process for Senator Omo-Agege's expulsion and prosecution by the appropriate law enforcement agency," Enitekiru said.
The group also added that "as stakeholders with strong concern for the protection of the interest of Urhobo people, Delta Central Senatorial district and the nation at large, we would not fold our arms and watch our elected representative undermine and denigrate democratic institutions, paint the people of Delta state in bad light, all in pursuance of personal interest and self aggrandizement voyage. Omo-Agege must be punished".
