Senate Rejects Senator Abbo’s Apology, Reveals Next Move by Abdulazeez99: 9:22pm On Jul 08
The Senate on Monday said that despite the public apology tendered by Senator Elisha Abbo, it would proceed with the Senator’s probe, Igbere TV reports.

Igbere TV reports that Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, had constituted a panel to investigate the assault, following a point of order raised by the Senator representing Kaduna Central, Uba Sani, on the issue.

The Senate Leader, Abdullahi Yahaya; Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe; and Senator Opeyemi Bamidele supported Sani by condemning Abbo’s alleged action.

Lawan said it would be unfair to both the lawmaker and the victim if the Senate should pass a judgment based on the viral video clip without listening to Abbo.

However, hours after the ad hoc panel was constituted, Abbo, who was absent from the Senate plenary on Wednesday, rushed to the National Secretariat of the PDP in Abuja where he addressed journalists and apologised to Nigerians and his victims for his action.

But the Chairman, Senate ad-hoc Committee on Media and Publicity, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, told Igbere TV on Monday that the public apology by Abbo was not enough to stop the Senate panel from going ahead with its assignment.

His reaction was contained in a statement made available to Igbere TV on Monday, in Abuja.

“The Senate has not taken any definite position on the issue. We only constituted an ad hoc committee to investigate the matter. We have not passed any verdict on the Senator.

“We are aware that Senator Abbo has tendered a public apology and regretted his action but that does not stop the Senate from going ahead with its own investigation.

“A responsible institution like the Senate should follow due process in a matter like this by ensuring that all parties are giving fair hearing.

“The Senate will base its decision on the report of the ad hoc committee whenever it is submitted and considered.”

Very simple something to do;

Suspend the idiat for 12 months.

Gather all him allowie, give ham MTN

Make them share airtime to all of us that spoke and spark using our data.

Its our Commonwealth.


Modified;
After suspension make they send him back to his Adamawa North people make them find replacement for ham.

But first let's enjoy the Commonwealth.

because he isn't their own.. if dude was an APC guy, they would have attempted sweeping the matter under the carpet.
am not for the abbo guy but different rules apply for different factions in Nigeria.
my point: this doesn't prove the integrity of the Senate

Please you guys should give this guy a break.
People are taking this thing too far. He isn't the first man to lay a hand on woman. When Dino abused his wife why people didn't go after him?

I begin to sense jealousy out this whole thing cos the guy became a senator at a very young age while his mates are busy engaging in internet fraud.

Even Donald Trump was known to have mishandle some women sexually and Americans didn't go after him like this in as much as they are more sophisticated democratically.

Whenever Nigerians want to over do things that's how they do it. Last two weeks they bored the hell out of us with those rape cases, last week was Buhari's Ruga of a thing and now this week this Senator's case.

I'm sure next week would be Buhari's ministerial nominees.

People are just looking for someone's misfortune to vent their anger on.

Even if the probe indicts him, what will the Senate do? Suspend him? Thought court ruled Omo Agege v. 8th Senate, that the Senate can't suspend a senator?
