The Senate on Tuesday declared that the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, has questions to answer in.connection with the allegations of his indictment by a United States Court.
Senate spokesman, Godiya Akwashiki, said this while addressing the Senate Press Corps in Abuja.
He vowed that the Senate will not turn a blind eye to any petition on the matter because it borders on the credibility of the Senate.
But, the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, had denied the allegation, adding that the conviction cited by a Delta-based youth group was “unscrupulous band of mischief makers”.
Reacting through a statement, which was issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Yomi Odunuga, he said political jobbers were working hard to reopen issues that have since been resolved in Omo-Agege’s favour.
He said the Deputy Senate President visited the United States of America and Canada for personal and official reasons last week to promote the nation’s political ideology, saying that his visit has nothing to do with conviction allegation.
“For the umpteenth time, we would like to reiterate the fact that Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was cleared of all charges in the said case and he was never a convict in the USA as being alleged. Till date, he travels freely to and within the country without any hint of harassment.
“We publish herewith details of our response to the same spurious allegation on September 25, 2018: “To this extent, by way of ‘fair commentary’ only, we will speak to the non-existent criminal conviction knowing that the matter is now in court and therefore subjudice. We will meet the blackmailer in court.
