Senator Abbo Surprises Everyone, Reveals Why He Defected To The APC

The senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District in Adamawa State at the Nigerian 9th National Assembly, Ishaku Elisha Abbo has defected to the APC. He was in the People's Democratic Party, and revealed the reason why he joined the All Progressive Congress during an interview with newsmen.

“Did they ask (Governor Dave) Umahi to resign? Go and ask them (PDP). Governor Umahi just defected from PDP to APC as a sitting governor of Ebonyi State. Did they ask him to resign?

“There is a crisis in the (PDP) party in my state. That is the truth. I believe internal democracy in the party has suffered in the last one year when the governor assumed office.

“As you all know, it is only in Adamawa State that we have reformed PDP. There is a crisis in the party in Adamawa State and the governor is the cause of the crisis.”

With his defection, the All Progressive Congress now has 60 senators while People's Democratic Party has 42. There are currently six vacant Senate seats.
