When quizzed on if it was his grouse with Governor Ahmad Fintiri that forced him out of the PDP, the Senator said, “ I left the PDP because the PDP is dead.”

Abbo said as one of the youngest persons to have been elected into the Senate in the current dispensation he remained a role model to youths.
