Sacked senator, who represented Adamawa North Senatorial District, Elisha Abbo, on Wednesday, apologised over his allegation that Senate President Godswill Akpabio plotted his removal by the Court of Appeal.
Abbo tendered his apology while speaking on an Arise Television live programme on Wednesday.
According to him, “I have to say with all sense of humility and responsibility that the press release we issued yesterday was premature and based on the available information at our disposal.
“As of today, we have discovered a lot of things, and yesterday night, I had a discussion with the Senate President, and I am convinced that he is not involved.
Abbo quoted Akpabio as telling him, “I swear by my mother’s grave that I’m not involved; I don’t even know that you’re in court.
“For a number three citizen to come up to tell me that he has sworn on his mother’s grave, a woman that he loves so much, a woman who brought him up after he lost his father at the age of six, I don’t see a reason why he would lie.”
Recall that the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja, last Monday, nullified Abbo’s election.
The Court of Appeal had declared the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Amos Yohanna, the winner of the February 25 senatorial election.
Abbo had blamed the Senate President for his ordeal.
The sacked Senator had alleged that Akpabio masterminded the unfavourable court judgment against him.
