The Senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, Senator Elisha Abbo, has blamed the Senate president, Godswill Akpabio, for the nullification of his election by the Court of Appeal.
Speaking on a Channels TV program shortly after the verdict was read, the embattled senator said he was the victim of a plot targeting senators who did not vote for Akpabio during the Senate Presidency election.
“I have it from a reliable source and a very highly placed one for that matter, that myself and four other senators within the fold of the ruling All Progressives Congress would be removed from the Senate through rulings from the courts, all because of working against 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 claimed.
“The court judgment is strange and the judiciary needs to please remain the last hope of the common man.
“For President Bola Tinubu, I must declare that this is not the democracy he fought for and should please lead in protecting it,” he added.
He appealed to his supporters to remain calm, however, vowing to return to the Senate in 2027.
