‘I joined APC For Justice’, Says Senator Abbo

Elisha Abbo, senator representing Adamawa north, has likened his Defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) as movement from darkness to light.

Abbo said this when he received the flag of the ruling party from Mai Mala Buni, chairman of the caretaker/extra-ordinary convention planning committee, at the APC national secretariat, Abuja.

The Senate President Ahmad Lawan had, on Wednesday, disclosed in a letter Abbo’s defection to the ruling party during plenary at the upper Legislative.

Abbo said he was in APC to help the people, noting that primary purpose of going into politics is to help the people.

He disclosed that he left the PDP because he has seen development, justice and leadership in the ruling party

“In the first place, reason why everybody should join politics is to serve the people. The essence of government is to shield the poor masses and ensure justice, ” Abbo said.

“My main mission of joining the APC is because I have seen justice, I have seen development and I have seen desire for the leadership at the highest peak to sacrifice their personal comfort just to make the poor people to feel good. So, I am in the APC to deliver; I am into the APC to help the people.

“I want to also commend some PDP members that moved with me from darkness to light. Adamawa has always been APC state. We are the ones that made it to tilt to the other side, please forgive us. We are now born again. We knew what we did and we will undo what we did come 2023. We shall not disappoint you, sir.”

The senator gave the assurance that he and other members who defected from the opposition party are ready to work for the progress of the APC in Adamawa.
