By Sylvanus Okpe

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has summoned its member the senator representing Adamawa Central, Elisha Abbo, over allegations of assault on a nursing mother at an adult sex toy shop in Abuja.

The party, in a statement by National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said as a law-abiding and upstanding party, it detests and completely condemns such “act of lawlessness and callousness as exhibited in the video and will, therefore, never condone it.

Part of the statement reads, “Our party is also shocked that the harmless victim of the unprovoked assault is said to be a nursing mother, who ought to be protected.

“Though this is 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 an investigation into the matter and summoned Senator Elisha Abbo, in line with the provisions of the Constitution of the PDP and code of conduct of our members.”

The publicity scribe also disclosed that the main opposition party has taken note of the swift action taken by the leadership of the Nigerian Senate.

Recall that the Senate had earlier set up a 7-member ad-hoc committee with a two weeks life span to investigate the incident and report their findings.

“The PDP, at all levels of engagement, is reputed for her utmost respect and commitment towards the rights, safety and wellbeing of our citizens, particularly our women, and cannot tolerate any callous assault on any Nigerian,” Mr Ologbondiyan stated.

The PDP further assured Nigerians that the party will never condone injustice but will always stand on the side of justice even when it affects a member of the family.

The Presidential candidate of the PDP in the just concluded general elections revealed in his reaction to the video of Abbo assaulting a nursing mother that he had urged the leadership of his party to take necessary disciplinary actions s required in taming an erring member such as senator Elisha Cliff.
