Adamawa Senator Elisha Abbo has apologised over his allegation that the Nigerian Senate President Godswill Akpabio plotted his removal by the Court of Appeal.
Abbo made the apology while speaking in an interview on Tuesday.
He stated, “I have to say this with all sense of humility and responsibility that the press release we issued yesterday was premature and based on the available information at our disposal yesterday.
“As of today, we have discovered a lot of things, and yesterday night I had a discussion with the Senate president, and I am convinced that he is not involved”
Senator Abbo had earlier made an allegation at his residence in Abuja on Monday, hours after the Court of Appeal nullified his election into the Senate.
The Adamawa senator claimed that Akpabio also has plans to remove the former chief whip of the senate, Senator Orji Uzor Jalu and four other senators for not backing his senate presidency bid.
Abbo described the judgment sacking him as a coup on democracy, calling on his supporters despite the ruling.
The senator insisted that, despite the court declaring the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Amos Yohanna as the winner of the February election, he won the exercise.
According to him, he defeated the PDP candidate with a margin of 11,000 votes.
