Senator Elisha Abbo whose election was nullified by the Court of Appeal on Monday has accused Senate President Godswill Akpabio of being responsible for his fate.
He told journalists at his residence in Abuja after learning about his sacking, that Akpabio had a hand in the unfavourable court judgment against him.
Abbo said Akpabio has marked down four other senators for removal through the court.
“I have it from a reliable source and a very highly placed one for that matter, that myself and four other senators within the fold of the ruling All Progressives Congress would be removed from the Senate through rulings from the courts, all because of working against emergence of Akpabio as President of the 10th Senate.
“I won’t mention the names of all the four other ones targeted but the next in line is Senator Orji Uzor Kalu,” Abbo claimed.
Abbo argued that there was no way his opponent of the PDP could have beaten him at the poll, saying he was so popular that his margin of victory against the PDP candidate was 11,000 votes.
“The court judgment is strange and the judiciary needs to please remain the last hope of the common man.
“For President Bola Tinubu, I must declare that this is not the democracy he fought for and should please lead in protecting it,” he added.
Abb, asked his supporters to remain calm, vowing that he would be back in the Senate in 2027.
