BREAKING; Akpabio reacts to allegations of planning to remove five Senators from upper Chambers

Senate President, Godswill Akpabio has distanced himself from the sack of Adamawa North Senator, Elisha Abbo by the Court of Appeal.

Akpabio said contrary to Abbo’s claim, he has no reason to witch-hunt the sacked lawmaker.

Following his sack by the Appeal Court, Abbo had accused Akpabio of being responsible for his removal.

Abbo said four other senators who worked against the emergence of Akpabio as Senate President had been penciled down to be sacked.


He alleged that Senator Orji Uzor Kalu was Akpabio’s next target.

Reacting, Akpabio accused Abbo of looking for a scapegoat.

He disclosed this while speaking through his Media Aide, Eseme Eyiboh.

Addressing newsmen, Eyiboh said, “It is unfortunate if he actually said that Akpabio was responsible for his removal. That’s the swan song of a man looking for scapegoats.

“The Court of Appeal across the country decides cases based on the provisions of the Electoral Act and evidence advanced by petitioners. The Senate President has no reason to witch-hunt any of his colleagues.”

Abbo was among the Senators that campaigned for Senator Yari during the struggle to elect Senate President.
