Deputy Senate President, preferred by the dictator, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, displaying his LOYALTY for @Buhari by kneeling to greet.
Now he controls the Executive arm, Legislature & the Judiciary.

When we have a Deputy Senate President KNEELING DOWN to greet @MBuhari, how can we expect the 9th National Assembly to STAND UP to him? The Legislature was created to CHECK the Executive, not to BOW to them. Kneel to God and parents only. Very sad! #FreeLeahSharibu #RenosDarts pic.twitter.com/81rivi5YtV
