Defeated presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar has reached out to embattled Senator Elijah Abbo who was captured on CCTV assaulting a lady in an adult shop.
Calling for disciplinary actions against the fellow party man, Atiku Abubakar expressed disappointment, asking the young leader to publicly apologize and voluntarily submit himself to the police as expected of good leaders, noting that the law is clear and his action is inexcusable.
I have seen the alleged assault video involving Sen. Elisha Abbo. The video is sad, inexcusable. I know the Senator quite well. But the law is clear and leaders must lead by example.
I advise him to publicly apologize, voluntarily go to the police and show a good example expected of a young leader. I also call on our party, the PDP to take necessary disciplinary action and the Nigerian Police to ensure the law takes its full course.
