The Senator representing Adamawa North in the 9th Assembly, Elisha Abbo, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a letter addressed to the senate and read by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan at Wednesday’s plenary session, Abbo cited the mismanagement of the PDP in his state by Governor Umaru Fintiri as the reason for his decision to dump the party in which he won the 2019 election.
The Senator has been in the news for assaulting an attendant at a sex-toy shop, named Osimibibra Warmate on May 11, 2019.
Abbo, was slapped a N50 million fine to be paid as compensation to Warmate by Justice Samira Bature of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Maitama, Abuja in September.
