A high court in Yola has nullified the nomination of Senator Elisha Abbo as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the northern Senatorial District of Adamawa state.
Justice Danladi Mohammed of High Court 3 ruled that Senator Abbo was not entitled to seek re-election having been expelled by his ward chapter of the APC.
Justice Danladi held that the embattled Senator and APC are bound by the resolution of Mubi North LG Exco dated 7th October, 2022, which expelled him, saying that he is not entitled to enjoy any right or privilege accorded to APC members.
It would be recalled that the Mubi North LG Exco of the party had on the 7th October, 2022, approved the expulsion of the Senator as recommended by the party’s Disciplinary Committee.
Likewise, the court further restrained APC under which the Senator is seeking re-election from recognising him as its candidate, saying that he cannot validly be the candidate of the party in the forthcoming general election.
