Published by Nairaland on Sun, 17 Mar 2019

<blockquote>By Felix Igbekoyi<br><br><br><br>ASABABarrister Ovie Omo-Agege, Senator Representing Delta Central, has vowed that no one remotely connected with Senator Bukola Saraki agenda will be allowed into the leadership of the Senate.<br><br>Omo-Agege, who also gave an insight into how the next leadership of the National Assembly would be selected, lamented that for almost three of the four years of Buharis first four years, those he termed as Sarakis relegates regime made sure all agenda of the government were shot down.<br><br>According to him, this was necessary to avert a repeat of events of the out-going Assembly, where the agenda of the All Progressive Congress (APC) was truncated due to the Saraki factor.<br><br>Omo-Agege maintained that the APC leaders were determined to ensure that there was no repeat, and that the only way to do that was to ensure that President Buhari, as leader of APC, would consult with the partys caucus on who should emerge Senate President.<br><br>While saying there was no time he said t Buhari would handpick the next Senate President and other principal officers for the Ninth National Assembly, he also said he had not told anyone that he would run for the Senate Presidency.<br><br>For that reason, we are saying, it is the partys caucus that will meet in consultation with Mr President and decide and recommend for the leadership position. And Mr President is the head of that caucus. Well no longer allow relegates to govern the National Assembly. When they did the last time, you saw what happened, he stressed.<br><br>The lawmaker said though he was as qualified as any other ranking senator to be Senate President, I have not told anybody that I am interested in running for the Senate Presidency. But, having said that, I am just as qualified as any other ranking senator of the Ninth Senate.<br><br>So, when the time comes, depending on the decision made by the caucus of the partyMr President and other relevant stakeholdersand depending on where it is zoned to. After the zoning, we consult ourselves and complied with the rules.</blockquote><br><br><br><a href="https://www.independent.ng/sarakis-loyalists-will-not-be-among-senate-leadership-omo-agege/">https://www.independent.ng/sarakis-loyalists-will-not-be-among-senate-leadership-omo-agege/</a>
