The Senate yesterday swore in Rev. Amos Yohanna of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Senator to represent Adamawa North.
Yohanna replaces Senator Elisha Abbo who was sacked by the Appeal Court.
Clerk of the Senate, Chinedu Akubueze, administered the oath of office and oath of allegiance on Yohanna, on the directive of the Deputy President of the Senate, Jibrin Barau, who presided over plenary.
With Yohanna’s swearing-in, APC now has 59 Senators, PDP (37), Labour Party (eight), NNPP (two); SDP (two) and APGA (one).
Abbo, who was previously affiliated with the PDP, made headlines when he defected to the APC following his initial term as Senator.
