Court sacks Senator Abbo as APC candidate for Adamawa North


By Aminu Kutama

An Adamawa State High Court has restrained the All Progressives Congress (APC) from recognising Ishaku Abbo as its candidate for Adamawa North in the forthcoming general election. 

In the judgement delivered on Monday, Justice Danladi Mohammed ruled that Senator Abbo is not entitled to seek re-election since he has been expelled by the party.

Justice Danladi held that the embattled Senator and APC are bound by the resolution of Mubi North local government executives of the party dated, 7th October 2022, which expelled the lawmaker thus he is not entitled to enjoy any right or privilege accorded to APC members.

It further restrained Sen. Abbo from parading himself as the candidate of the party for the zone.

But Senator Abbo has faulted the ruling, describing it as a cash-and-carry judgement.

According to him, the judgment is a bought-over judgement because those who purportedly expelled him from the party are not local government party executives and therefore have no jurisdiction to do so.
