Eagle Square, Abuja – The deputy Senate president Ovie Omo-Agege has described the framers of Nigeria’s 1999 Constitution as amended as smart. Ovie-Agege said this while fielding questions from journalists at the national convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday, March 26.

He made the comment as he reacted to questions on the sack of the Ebonyi state governor, David Umahi, by the court.

Recall that a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had sacked Umahi and his deputy, Kelechi Igwe for defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling APC.

Ovie-Agege however noted that it is confusing that the framers of the constitution allows the lawmakers to be removed from their position when they cross carpet but governors are spared from same fate. He said: “I am aware that some members of the legislature, when they defect or cross carpet either at the federal level or at the state House of Assemblies the court removes them.
