Senator Abbo Accuses Akpabio Of Being Responsible For His Removal, Reveals Other Senators Targeted

The lawmaker representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, Elisha Abbo, on Monday, accused the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, of being responsible for his removal from office.

Naija News reported that the Court of Appeal in Abuja on Monday voided the election of Abbo of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and declared Amos Yohanna of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner of the poll.

The three-member panel presided over by Justice C.E. Nwosu-Iheme, in a judgement, ordered INEC to issue a Certificate of Return to Yohanna as validly elected lawmaker for the senatorial district.

Abbo, in his reaction to the court judgment, said four other senators who worked against the emergence of Akpabio as Senate President had been targeted for removal from the Red Chamber through the court.

The lawmaker, while addressing newsmen, specifically mentioned the Senator representing Abia North, Orji Uzor Kalu as the next target for removal from the Senate.
