Senator Elisha Abbo has dumped PDP for APC.
NewsOne Nigeria reports that Senator Elisha Abbo has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition to the All Progressives Congress (APC), the nation’s ruling political party.
Senator Elisha Abbo, who represents Adamawa North in the Nigerian Senate, announced his defection to the APC from the PDP in a letter addressed to the Nigerian Senate and read on the floor of the upper legislative chamber.
The President of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan, read the letter during Wednesday’s plenary session.
Senator Abbo explained In his letter, that his decision to defect to the APC is because of the mismanagement of the PDP in Adamawa state by Governor Umaru Fintiri.
The senator who is a first- term lawmaker, was elected in 2019 to the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Meanwhile, Senator Elisha Abbo made headlines last year for slapping an attendant in a sex toy shop for ‘disrespecting’ him.
