contest again for the position at the formation of the 9th Senate is to
protest against the invasion of the National Assembly last year.

until few hours to the election of principal officers at the National
Assembly was nominated by his colleagues at the red chamber.

Mr Omo-Agege was alleged to have led thugs to invade and cart away the symbolic power of the red chamber last year.
