SENATOR ABBO'S REPLACEMENT YOHANNA SWORN IN AS SENATOR FOR ADAMAWA NORTH SENATORIAL DISTRICT

Jibrin Barau, the Deputy President of the Senate, recently administered the oath of office to Amos Yohanna, who now assumes the role of Senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District. 

Yohanna, a member of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) from Adamawa, takes over this position following the removal of Senator Elisha Abbo from the All Progressives Congress (APC). The Court of Appeal issued the removal verdict last week.

This decision follows a legal battle that saw a three-member panel led by Justice C. E. Nwosu-Iheme order the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to award Amos Yohanna a Certificate of Return as the duly elected Senator, overturning Abbo's initial victory upheld at the tribunal level.

INEC had initially declared Senator Abbo as the victor of the parliamentary election held on February 25. Yohanna challenged this result by taking the matter to the tribunal, but his case was dismissed for lacking merit. Unyielding, the PDP candidate took his case to the appellate court. Represented by Johnson Usman (SAN), he successfully convinced the court that his case was valid.

Following the arguments presented by both parties, the Appeal Court agreed with Usman that, based on Section 137 of the Electoral Act, 2022, the election results did not comply with the Electoral Act. 

Consequently, the court deducted the invalid votes from both sides, ultimately determining that Yohanna and the PDP secured victory with the majority of lawful votes.

In response to the court's judgment, Senator Abbo expressed his discontent, describing it as a challenge to democracy. However, he urged his supporters to remain composed and vowed to seek reelection in the next election.
