Senate President Godswill Akpabio has dismissed his alleged involvement in the political travail of Senator Elisha Abbo, who was sacked from the Senate by the Court of Appeal.

He emphasized that the court’s decisions are based on facts and evidence within the rule of law.

Eyiboh said, “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.”

VerseNews earlier reported that he Court of Appeal recently invalidated Abbo’s election and declared Amos Yohana of the Peoples Democratic Party as the rightful winner of the Adamawa North senatorial election.
