Sacked Senator apologises to Akpabio over allegations says am sorry

Sacked Senator apologises to Akpabio over allegations says am sorry

Embattled senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, Elisha Abbo, has apologised over his allegation that the Senate president Godswill Akpabio plotted his removal by the Court of Appeal.

Abbo made the apology while speaking in an interview on Arise Television on Wednesday, October 18, monitored by The Nation.

The Nation reports that Court of Appeal in Abuja, on Monday, October 16, nullified the election of Abbo.

The appellate court declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Amos Yohanna, as the winner of the February 25 senatorial election.


Abbo had blamed his fate on the Senate President.

He alleged that Akpabio had a hand in the unfavourable court judgment against him.

Backtracking, he said: “I have to say this with all sense of humility and responsibility that the press release we issued yesterday was premature and based on the available information at our disposal yesterday.

“As of today, we have discovered a lot of things, and yesterday night I had a discussion with the Senate president, and I am convinced that he is not involved.

He quoted Akpabio: “I swear by my mother’s grave that I’m not involved; I don’t even know that you’re in court.”

Abbo further stated: “For a number three citizen to come up to tell me that he has sworn on his mother’s grave, a woman that he loves so much, a woman who brought him up after he lost his father at the age of six, I don’t see a reason why he would lie.”

Abbo, however, apologised to the Senate president, emphasising that Akpabio was not involved in his ousting from office.
