Bight Newspaper reports that the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio has distanced himself from his alleged involvement in the ouster of Senator Elisha Abbo from the Senate.

Bight Newspaper had earlier learnt that the Court of Appeal in Abuja, on Monday, nullified the election of Abbo of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking in an interview with reporters in Abuja, Senator Abbo accused the President of the Senate Akpabio as being behind his removal from the Red Chamber for campaigning and working against his Senate Presidency ambition.

Abbo said four other senators who worked for Senator Abdulaziz Yari to emerge as Senate President had been targeted for removal from the Red Chamber through the court.

The sacked Adamawa North Senator specifically mentioned Senator Orji Uzor Kalu (APC Abia North) as the next target for removal from the Senate.

However, reacting to the allegation, Mr. Eseme Eyiboh, Media Aide to the Senate President, said Abbo is just looking for someone to cast blame for his sack from the Senate.

Eyiboh excused his principal from being responsible for the court judgement, which sacked Abbo from the Senate and has no reason to witch-hunt any of his colleagues.

“It is unfortunate if he actually said that Akpabio was responsible for his removal. That’s the swan song of a man looking for scapegoats.

“The Court of Appeal across the country decides cases based on the provisions of the Electoral Act and evidence advanced by petitioners. The Senate President has no reason to witch-hunt any of his colleagues.” He said.
