Thugs invasion: Why Saraki is responsible for missing mace – Sagay


The Chairman of Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) has blamed Senate President Bukola Saraki for the invasion of the senate by suspected thugs on Wednesday.
Sagay explained that Saraki and his minions in the

senate had been provoking people to take the law into their own hands.
The Senior Advocate said this while speaking to Punch.
He said, “This Senate led by

Bukola Saraki has been provoking Nigerians for a long time. What happened today (Wednesday) was illegal; there is no doubt about that. But the provocation that this particular Senate has been inflicting on Nigerians has reached a boiling point.
“You cannot be enjoying the huge and enormous resources of the people, living in luxury and at the same time refusing to do your job, making trouble with the executive at the slightest opportunity, bringing the government to a standstill and then turning members of the Senate into puns who can be pushed here and there.
“I think Saraki has gone too far. While what happened today is illegal, I have no doubt in my mind that he and the group that surround him provoked it. Ultimately, I hold Saraki responsible for what happened today.”
DAILY POST reports that thugs suspected to be loyal to the suspended Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial district, Ovie Omo-Agege
had invaded the red chambers and forcefully took away the mace.
They broke into the chambers when plenary was going on, creating serious confusion and tension.
Few hours later, Sen. Omo-Agege was arrested in connection to the incident but was later released, after which he denied claims that he staged the incident.

    Brigandage has been lurking in the corridors. It has now entered the chambers. Bullies have held sway for too long. Naked thugs have now taken over.
    Nothing is hallowed. Thugs stormed the Senate Chambers today. and took our mace away. They didnt mind that they were on camera. Security men ran like people without legs. The thugs got into their car and drove away. Away from a tightly guarded NASS premises.
    It was foretold.
    Omo Agege has an existing mandate to represent his constituency. He can disagree publicly withe the senate leadership without being punished. His suspension from the senate by Saraki and co was tyrannical. Senators who are opposed to Saraki cannot be hounded by the senate.
    The Mace has travelled. The Budget has not been passed. This is April. The Senate will descend into internecine squabbles and petty quarrels. The Budget will be passed in June. And it would be late to be meaningful.
    This is shameful. Those who stole the mace must be prosecuted. But bullying in the senate must end.
    But wait a minute……..
    I hear a coup against the senate leadership is in progress……..
