#POLITICS: Omo-Agege of the mace-theft scandal defeats Ekweremadu to emerge Dep. Senate President

He secured 67 of the 107 votes in the election to defeat Ike Ekweremadu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
 
The lawmaker representing Delta central, Ovie Omo-Agege, has been elected deputy president of the Senate.

He secured 67 of the 107 votes in the election to defeat Ike Ekweremadu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).​

Omo-Agege was accused in April 2018, of allegedly leading thugs to steal the mace of the Senate while plenary was ongoing.

The thugs left the National Assembly with the mace, which is the symbol of authority of the parliament, in a black SUV.

Omo-Agege was later arrested by Abuja police at the Senate premises. He was whisked away in a black hilux van.

Meanwhile, Factszone had reported that the concerned caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC) rejected the endorsement of Senator Omo-Agege for the position of ddeputy Senate president of the ninth National Assembly.

The group was reacting to a statement credited to Senator Ita Enang that Senator Omo-Agege had been endorsed for the position.

According to the group, Enang can neither speak for the party nor the presidency as he is no longer the senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly matters (Senate) in line with the provisions of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended).

Amidst all that happened before now and the clouds hovering over Sen. Omo Agege APC still went ahead to endorse him and make him the Deputy Senator President which they denied ever plotting before.
