Abbo who said, “I’m moving from darkness to light” was accompanied to the APC national secretariat by the Senate president, Ahmed Lawan.

He said:

“In the first place, the reason everybody should join politics is to serve the people. The essence of government is to work for the poor masses and ensure justice.
“My main mission of joining the APC is because I have seen justice, I have seen development and I have seen desire for the leadership at the highest peak to sacrifice their personal comfort just to make the poor people to feel good. So I am in the APC to deliver. I am in the APC to help the people."

Lawan, who introduced the senator to the APC leaders, emphasised that Adamawa state is an APC state, adding that the accident that happened to create what is today ruling Adamawa would be addressed.

He said:

PDP is in disarray, Nigeria needs formidable opposition, APC mocks ex-ruling party amid defection
“By the grace of God, by 2023, Adamawa should take the rightful place it deserves. Let me be very specific and emphatic, Adamawa deserves an APC governor, APC National Assembly, APC state Assembly."
