On Elisha Abbo’s dismissal from the election: Aboo, who represents the Adamawa Noirth senatorial district in the Ninth National Assembly, was disqualified from running for the 2023 senatorial seat by the State High Court 3 presided over by Judge Danladi Mohamed.
What the court ruled about Senator Abbo: While passing sentence, Judge Mohammed held that the embattled senator and APC are bound by the Mubi North local government executives’ resolution dated 7 October 2022, which expelled him, saying he has no right to enjoy any right or privilege granted to APC. members
Elisha Abbo reacts to the dismissal: Reacting to the ruling, Abbo complained that the court is said to be the common man’s last hope, but sadly it has become ‘cash and carry’.
He described the ruling as ‘defective‘ because those who allegedly expelled him from the party are not local government party executives and therefore have no jurisdiction to expel him.
He revealed that he will appeal the case in the Court of Appeals and therefore called on his followers to remain in peace.
I remember: In 2020, an FCT High Court fined Nigeria’s youngest senator, Elisha Abbo, a sum of N50 million, after he was caught on camera physically assaulting a woman in an adult toy store in Abuja.
Why Abbo was dragged to court by his fellow party members: The court said that the plaintiffs’ action in suing Abbo is not an internal party matter as alleged and that they have the locus standi to bring action against him as they are registered party members.
Two APC members, abdullah suleiman Y Yusha’u Usman from Kolere and Sabon Layi districts in Mubi North local government area respectively, sued Abbo and sought interpretation regarding his status in the APC.
