Elisha Abbo has been disqualified as the senatorial candidate for Adamawa North in the upcoming general election by a high court in Yola, Adamawa State.
The All Progressives Congress, or APC, was prohibited from recognizing him as such by the court as well.
Justice Danladi Mohammed announced the verdict on Monday. Senator Abbo was declared unable to run for reelection by Justice Danladi since the party had kicked him out.
The Judge further ruled that the Senator and the APC are bound by the resolution of the party’s Mubi North Local Government executives dated October 7, 2022, which expelled the lawmaker. As a result, the Judge determined that the Senator is not eligible to benefit from any privilege or right enjoyed by APC members.
Additionally, it urged Senator Abbo to withdraw running as the party’s candidate for the zone.
In the meantime, the troubled Senator has criticized the decision, calling it a cash-and-carry judgment.
