Press Conference by Senator Ishaku Abbo (SIA) (PDP Adamawa North)
Senator Ishaku Abbo, representing Adamawa North has tendered an apology to the lady he slapped in sex store and also pleaded for forgiveness from Nigerians.
The Senator who was caught in a video that has since gone viral slapping a shop attendant viciously said during a press conference that he has no track record of such conduct.
According to his statement: ” It is with a deep sense of remorse and responsibility that I, Senator Ishaku Abbo (SIA) profoundly apologize to all Nigerians, the Senate, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), my family, friends as well as our mothers – the Nigerian women.
I personally apologize to Bibra and her family for my action towards her, which has brought immense discomfort in our body polity.
I have never been known or associated with such actions in the past. Regardless of what transpired prior to my expression of anger, I am sincerely sorry and plead that all men and women of good conscience should have the heart to forgive me. To err is human, to forgive is divine.
To the Church of God everywhere in the world, I am sorry. As an Ambassador of Christ, much is expected of me.
My family and religious upbringing do not give approval to such conduct and for this, as a leader, I seek forgiveness before God and all those who feel offended by my action.
Indeed, this episode has taught me a very great lesson both as a private citizen and a public officer, particularly as a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria upon whom public confidence is bestowed.
Finally, I assure Nigerians, especially the people of Adamawa North of my good conduct at all times.
Thank you and God bless”
