The Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has been criticized for kneeling to greet President Muhammadu Buhari during a visit to the President.
The verified Twitter handle of the Federal Government, @AsoRock, unveiled photos of the visit of the newly elected leaders of the ninth National Assembly to President Buhari on Tuesday night.
“Last night, President @MBuhari received newly elected Senate President Lawan Ahmed and newly elected Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege, at the Residence State House in Abuja. They were accompanied by few other Senators,” @AsoRock tweeted.
Responding to the tweet, some Twitter users chided the Deputy Senate President for his extreme show of respect, expressing worries over the independence of the legislature under the new Senate leadership.
