HATFIELD, United Kingdom (VOICE OF NAIJA) –Sacked Senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, Elisha Abbo, has tendered his apology to Senate President Godswill Akpabio following his allegation that the former plotted his removal by the Court of Appeal.
Speaking in an interview on Arise Television on Wednesday, Senator Abbo said he is convinced that the Senate President is not involved in his sack after meeting him Tuesday night.
His words; “I have to say 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.
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 also said Akpabio had to swear by his mother’s grave to prove his innocence.
“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,” he added.
Recall the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday, October 16, nullified the election of Abbo while declaring Amos Yohanna of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner of the February 25 senatorial election.
The embattled Senator had blamed his fate on the Senate President, alleging the latter was behind his ouster.
