‘His action is callous’ – PDP vows to punish Elisha Abbo
The National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, Elisha Abbo, for assaulted a nursing mother.
The senator was seen in a viral video assaulting the woman at a sex toy shop in Abuja,
Speaking through a statement on Wednesday, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the PDP would stop at nothing to bring Abbo to book.
He added that the party detested and completely condemned such “act of lawlessness and callousness” as exhibited in the video and will therefore never condone it.
He said, “Though this is a personal conduct of an individual which has no bearing with the culture of our party, the PDP, however, holds that no responsible person will condone such an attitude.
“In the light of this, the NWC has commenced investigation into the matter and summons Senator Elisha Abbo in line with the provisions of the Constitution of the PDP and code of conduct of our members.
“In the same vein, the party has taken note of the immediate action taken by the Senate.”
The PDP spokesman stated that the PDP, at all levels of engagement, is reputed for its utmost respect and commitment towards the rights, safety and well-being of Nigerian citizens, particularly women, and cannot tolerate any callous assault on any Nigerian.
He noted that the party will never spare a thought in taking action on any of its members found wanting, particularly those elected or appointed into public offices.
