A group, Omolori Solidarity has accused the Senate President, Dr. Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila of high level mischief against the Clerk to the National Assembly, Alhaji Mohammed Ataba Sani-Omolori.

The group was reacting to a circular by the National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) on Wednesday directing National Assembly staff who are 60 years of age or 35 that have spent 35 years of service to proceed on retirement.

The circular was signed by the Chairman of the National Assembly Service Commission, Engr. Ahmed Kadi Amshi which would retire Mr. Omolori based on his years of service.

In a statement which was sent to CAPITAL POST on Thursday by the convener of the group, Sani Yaro, he said, over 1,000 Nigerians have been mobilised for protest at the Assembly at noon day on Thursday.

The group revealed those who shall participate in Thursday’s protest to be students, some staff of National Assembly, and workers from the private and public sectors.

Part of the statement reads: “In acknowledgement of the fact that the mischief in high places at the National Assembly as well as needless intrigues towards effecting the removal of the Clerk of the National Assembly (CNA), Alhaji Sani Omolori has reached level of concern; we hereby declare our intention to help safeguard the inalienable rights of our inimitable brother, Alhaji Omolori.

“The Omolori Solidarity Group, comprising some National Assembly staff, students, workers in the private and public sector have come together in a development triggered by an overreaching, callous and mischievous memo from the National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) dated July 15, 2020 and implying that the CNA must be rushed out of office prematurely.”

The group further maintained that the Senate President planted his former Aide as NASC Chairman with the support of the House Speaker to remove the Clerk to the NASS in order to pave way for their candidate.

The group warned the leadership of NASS to get set for lawsuit, if the removal of Omolori was effected today
