The senator representing Adamawa North, Mr Ishaku Abbo has on the floor of the Senate, defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Abbo, a first- term lawmaker, was elected in 2019 to the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He announced his defection on Wednesday through a letter he wrote to the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan. The letter titled, “Movement of God’s people from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress” read:
“I write to formally inform you Sir, the Senate and indeed Nigerians of my defection from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
“This is as a result of the mismanagement of the PDP by Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri in Adamawa State which led to the crisis in the party that in turn led to the polarization of the party in the state (PDP and PDP).
“Today I join the APC and the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhamadu Buhari to build the Nigeria of our dreams.”
“The journey may be long, but we are on the right track as I strongly believe that by the end of the tenure of Mr. President, Nigeria will be a better place.
