CCTV Clip: PDP Condemns Assault, Summons Senator Abbo

The People's Democratic Party PDP says the attention of its National Working Committee (NWC) has been drawn to a CCTV footage relating to allegations of malfeasance by a senator elected on the platform of the Party, Senator Elisha Abbo.

The PDP said as a law-abiding and upstanding party, it detests and completely condemn such act of lawlessness and callousness as exhibited in the video and will therefore never condone it.

A statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the main opposition party, Kola Ologbondiyan on Wednesday said the 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 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, 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" the statement said.

The PDP therefore assured Nigerians that it will always stand on the side of justice and will never spare a thought in taking action on any of its members found wanting, particularly those elected or appointed into public offices.
