Group lauds Sen Abbo’s remorseful over assault on woman



Ishaku Abbo

Coalition of Civil Society Groups, CCSG, has commended the swiftness with which Senator Elisha Abbo (PDP Adamawa North), accused of beating a nursing mother at an adult toy shop in Abuja, apologised to the woman, the church, youth and Nigerians in general.
The group, however, berated the National Assembly for its double standards over the Senate leadership silence on cases concerning two other Senators with worst case of moral decadence.
In a press statement issued on Sunday in Abuja by its President, Mr. Kingsley Nwagwu, and Secretary General, Abubakar Ibrahim, the Coalition said Abbo should be commended for tendering apology without been forced or compelled, adding that it was a sign of good leadership quality.
The group said rather than being victimised, the senator should be emulated by others who would never apologise or show remorsefulness even when caught pant down.
“We have watched with keen interest several comments credited to several commentators on the alleged assault video released by an online platform involving Sen. Elisha Abbo, with most calling him out along partisan basis. This we outrightly condemned as we have long expected a better robust angle to it.
“He swiftly responded to the alleged tape and tendered an open apology on the subject matter without been forced or compelled to do so. This act alone of accepting the wrongs allegedly said to have been committed without been compelled to is a clear indication that we now have a new set of Nigeria leaders in the new generations of political class coming up now unlike the older generation who has never deemed it fit to apologize nor retract wrongs done at a point in time.
“We thus see this act as a good sense of humor that should be acknowledged and urge others that have afflicted our common heritage at a time to come up and tender public apology. This no doubt coming from Senator Abbo is a clear example of new generation of leaders who are not full of themselves nor allow power to intoxicate them,” the group said.
The group said the release of the video was suspicious and that it was done to victimise Abbo because of his minority status in the Red Chamber, saying if those threatening to arrest him are genuinely concern, they should also arrest the Governor of Kano State, Ganduje and former deputy speaker of Nasarawa State House of Assembly now a  Senator, where he was caught  hands down with somebody’s wife.
It therefore Gabe ultimatum to the Senate leadership to prosecute other Senators with worst moral cases or the group would mobilise other Nigeria youth for a protest to the National Assembly.
Our findings further reveals that, even though we didn’t support the alleged assault, the rationale behind releasing the said video was suspicious, we discovered also that the lady in question is not even a nursing mother as alleged by the nay sayers.
“The worrisome part of it all, was that the alleged video was recorded before inauguration of 9th Assembly but they preferred to wait till now. We are bothered with this, and coupled with swift actions that followed the allegation from the police and senate to ask pertinent question of why did they ignore the Gov. Ganduje ‘Dolloar collection video’?
“Also, a video went virile of a former deputy speaker of Nasarawa State House of Assembly now a  Senator, where he was caught  hands down with somebody’s wife before their inauguration and up till now nobody has asked the required moral questions, nor asked him to apologize for the wrongs did. What we rather saw was incessant call for prosecution of Senator Elisha Abbo, while their was criminal silence on others”, the group stated.
