Justice Danladi decided that the Senator and APC are bound by the All Progressive Congress (APC) Mubi North Local government chapter’s executive’s October 7, 2022, expulsion of him from the party. The court also ruled that Senator Abbo is not entitled to APC benefits. On October 7, 2022, the party’s Mubi North LG executive agreed with the disciplinary committee to expel the Senator.
Termination In The General Election
The court also barred the senator’s party, APC, from nominating him for the next general election. Sen.

Odo, said he would inform his client of the court’s verdict and appeal to the Court of Appeal if the client agreed.References
