Senator Abbo responds to detractors in the expulsion saga

Ishaku Abbo, a senator from Adamawa North Senatorial District, claims he cannot be expelled from the All Progressives Congress (APC) by party leaders in Mubi North Local Government Area.

The senator is in court contesting the expulsion decision made against him by the party’s Mubi North LGA executive committee.

Abbo was removed from the APC two months prior after the committee accused him of wrongdoing due to his repeated criticism of the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket of the APC.

Abbo is currently asking the state High Court, presided over by Hon. Justice Danladi Mohammed, to reject a lawsuit filed by two party members in Mubi who are requesting an injunction barring him from running for his senate seat again the following year on the basis of the aforementioned expulsion.

The trial court’s presiding judge has already reserved his or her decision in the case for a time that will be made known to the parties.

The senator was sued by APC members Abdullahi Suleiman and Yusha’u Usman of the Kolere and Sabon Layi wards, respectively, of the Mubi North LGA, who asked for clarification on the senator’s standing in the party following his “expulsion.”

The plaintiffs are pleading with the court to rule that Abbo is ineligible to represent the APC in the upcoming general election as the senatorial candidate for Adamawa North through their legal representative, Abubakar Ali.

At the Friday hearing, the senator’s attorney, E. O. Odo, informed the court that Abbo had not received a formal notification from the APC or anybody else that he had been ejected from the party.

Odo contended that by expressing his opinion regarding the party’s presidential ticket, his client had not broken any party rules.

He said that, in addition, no one had ever attempted to personally serve Senator Abbo with the alleged complaint or any other complaint prior to the party’s decision to expel him.

A proposal to expel a senator from the party must be submitted to the national leadership for ultimate approval, he continued, according to the party’s constitution.
