Senate President Akpabio behind my sack by Appeal Court – Abbo
The ousted Adamawa North senator, Elisha Abbo, has alleged that Senate President Godswill Akpabio has a hand in the Appeal Court ruling which removed him from office.
Elisha, who was reacting to the court’s ruling, claimed that four other senators who worked against the emergence of Akpabio as Senate President had been targeted for removal from the Senate through the court.
The ousted Senator made the claim in an interview with newsmen on Monday in Abuja.
Abbo specifically mentioned Senator Orji Uzor Kalu (APC Abia North) as the next target for removal from the Senate.
“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 rulings from the courts, 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,” he said.
“The court judgement is strange and the judiciary needs to please remain the last hope of the common man,” Elisha added.
MTC recalls that the Court of Appeal voided Abbo’s election under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The court presided over by Justice C.E. Nwosu-Iheme ruled that Amos Yohanna, who contested under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, platform, is the validly elected lawmaker for the senatorial district.
