Mace theft: Osinbajo, Ekweremadu in closed door at Aso Rock

Juliana Taiwo-Obalonye, Abuja

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu met behind closed at the the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting came hours after some hoodlums, said to have been led by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, invaded the Senate plenary session and made away with the mace, the symbol of authority of the Senate.

Speaking to State House Correspondents at the end of the meeting, Ekweremadu said he came to update Osinbajo on what happened earlier at the Senate.

“I am sure you are aware of the Senate invasion today and we have to come and brief the Vice President because the President is not in town. So it was appropriate for him to know what transpired because we run a democracy, we are all in one government. It is the responsibility of the President or the Vice President to ensure that there is law and order in the country, and once we have this kind of major development it is important that he is briefed at the earliest opportunity,” said the Deputy Senate President.

“As the Senate President is out of the country, it is therefore my responsibility to come over and brief the Vice President. He has sympathized with us over what happened, and he is going to join forces with us to ensure that we get to the root of the matter to make sure that this will not happen again.

“For us, it’s a threat to our democracy, the invasion of the parliament is not acceptable to any person. It is not acceptable to me, it is not acceptable to the VP, it not acceptable to my colleagues. I believe it is not also acceptable to the President, so those who acted this script must be on their own.

“All we need to do as a country is to ensure that this is forestalled, and I want to appeal to the media to help us discourage this kind of brigandage so that people have to behave in a very responsible manner. But let me assure you that we are on top of the situation. We did our sitting today and we are going to continue tomorrow.

Ekweremadu continued that: “Having suffered suspension, does Omo-Agege has legal right to enter the chamber? It was a breach of the law for him to force himself into the chambers. As I said, the police is still investigating. We are going to find out the details of those who aided him to come in, and then some of them I believe have been arrested, and we will get to the root of the matter,” the Senator said.

    Is there any official letter approved by NASS which stated that Osinbajo assumed the duty of president and commander in chief of armed forces under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria? The club of bandits nickname NASS which got no such letter, approve no such letter, at the same time recognized Osinbajo as what under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria? The comedy and mockery of fraud is evidence of the fact that the club of bandits nickname NASS under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria are complicit and collaborators of the enemy in the enemy’s murder of this territory natives and in the enemy’s plunder of this territory natives God given wealth. Both Osinbajo, Ekweremadu, the club of bandits nickname NASS must go down with the enemy in this climax of the ongoing Revolution War of the natives under the natives Disintegrated Republics which secures the natives existence and future in 21st century world. It is over for the dead fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates in this natives territory. It is over for the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria in this natives territory. It is over for the enemy’s brainwashed terrorism mercenaries nickname military, police etc. in this natives territory. Only the Sword decides. It is God given Liberation, it is God given Freedom. God Is With Us!!!
