STRONG indications emerged Tuesday that crisis looms in the National Assembly as former Senate Leader, Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume, APC, Borno South and Senator Ovie Omo- Agege, APC, Delta Central have been summoned to appear before a joint Committee of the Senate and the House of Representatives.

He said: "We have equally filed an appeal against the judgment of the court and a motion for stay of execution of the judgment at the Court of Appeal".

The committee said the punishment was imperative because the senator took the issue to court after it was referred to the committee.

Omo-Agege could not be reached, as he did not pick several calls made to his telephone line.

On the day of his suspension, Omo-Agege told Punch that he would continue to work as a senator.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, in the judgment, said the order nullifying the suspension was "with immediate effect".

He established that Omo-Agege came in with seven unidentified persons dressed in black and native wears as he said six of them were arrested with him while one of the suspects escaped using the Presidential Villa gate.

At its most depleted, around the turn of the 21st century, the ozone layer had declined by about five percent. Today, from its peak in 1993, CFC-11 concentrations have declined by 15 percent .

Following the judgement, an aide to Senate President Bukola Saraki, said the Senate has approached the court to appeal the ruling and institute a stay of execution.

"This is pending the determination of the application for stay of execution". But he also advised the lawmakers to withdraw their appeal of the judgement.

Okowa made the pledge at the weekend in Asaba, the state capital during a meeting with stakeholders in the Delta North Senatorial district.The assurance became necessary following allegations that the PDP imposed some candidates and rigged the contest in favour of some candidates.The Chairman of PDP in the district, Mr. Moses Iduh commended the governor for the successful conduct of the Ekiti PDP governorship primaries.

In a statement issued by its spokesperson, Sabi Abdullahi, the Senate said it has been briefed by its lawyers on last Thursday's judgment of the Federal High Court in Abuja nullifying its suspension of Omo-Agege, adding that it had resolved not to stop the senator into the chamber.

However, a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday nullified the suspension.

"In particular, the Executive should, as a matter of urgency, purge itself of contempt of court by complying with the judgment of the Federal High Court delivered on December 2, 2016 which directed that Sheik Ibraheem Elzakzaky and his wife, Hajia Zeinab Elzakzaky be released from the illegal custody of the State Security Service".
