POLITICAL TURBULENCE IN ADAMAWA NORTH: Former Senator, Elisha Abbo’s Allegations Stir Controversy

SENATOR ELISHA ABBO

Adamawa North’s former senator, Elisha Abbo, has made allegations against Senate President Godswill Akpabio, claiming that Akpabio was involved in the Appeal Court’s decision that led to his removal from office. Abbo, in response to the court’s ruling, alleged that four other senators who opposed Akpabio’s emergence as Senate President are also being targeted for removal from the Senate through legal proceedings.

During an interview in Abuja, Abbo specifically mentioned Senator Orji Uzor Kalu (APC Abia North) as the next senator in line for potential removal. He said, “I have it from a reliable source that myself and four other senators within the fold of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will be removed from the Senate through court rulings, all because of working against the emergence of Akpabio as President of the 10th Senate. I won’t mention the names of all the four other ones targeted, but the next in line is Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.”

Abbo also expressed his concerns about the court judgment, describing it as unusual, and emphasized the importance of the judiciary remaining the last hope of the common man.

It’s worth noting that the Court of Appeal nullified Abbo’s election, which he contested under the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform, and declared Amos Yohanna, who ran under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as the validly elected lawmaker for the senatorial district.
