PDP Senator Elisha Abbo Dumps Party, Joins APC

The senator representing the Adamawa North Senate District in the Senate, Elisha Abbo, left the People’s Democratic Party and joined the Congress of All Progressives.

Senator Elisha Abbo’s defection was announced Wednesday.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan announced Abbo’s defection in a letter he read during Wednesday’s plenary session.

In the letter, Mr. Abbo explained that his decision to defect to the APC is due to poor management of the PDP in Adamawa State by Governor Umaru Fintiri.
