Senator Elisha Abbo, has on Wednesday, announced his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC,
The Senator who is representing Adamawa North in the 9th National Assembly, announced his defection in a letter addressed to the Red Chamber.
The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, read the letter during the plenary session.
In the letter, Senator Abbo explained that his decision to defect to the APC, was because of the mismanagement of the PDP in Adamawa State, by Governor Umaru Fintiri.
Senator Abbo had been in the news for physically assaulting a woman in an adult toy shop in Abuja.
A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, sitting in Maitama, earlier in September, awarded N50 million damages against him, to be paid as compensation to Osimibibra Warmate, the female Attendant who he assaulted.
Justice Samira Bature gave the order in her judgement on the fundamental rights enforcement suit instituted by Warmate against Senator Abbo.
